Today Teheran may look as an Eastern capital should the rage of light and colours in shopping areas, gold and carpet rows of the giant bazaar. And at the same time its an ascetic city where dwellers have little entertainment, few theatres, cinemas, where there is a strict prohibition law, where women wear black from head to toes, where men and bearded mullahs are somber and non-smiling.
A fresh man will find it hard to believe that 20 years ago Teheran was called Middle East Paris.
The author of the film, Evgeni Kiselyov, who had once worked in Teheran, describes the events which completely changed the image of the city as seen 20 years later.
