Synopsis
It's rare that a pop star is produced from Iran, but Googoosh has bucked the trend and made some headway into having her countries music accepted out of its natural habitat. In this documentary, her struggle to be heard is chartered, with her successes put into context by highlighting the social and political upheavals that occurred in Iran during the 1960s, when Googoosh began her musical career. Historically fascinating, this is the story of one woman's struggle to be heard against an oppressive regime.
