Details

The Ruby Tear Catcher is the heart-warming story of an Iranian woman whose life is uprooted during the Islamic Revolution in Iran in the 1970s and '80s. While jailed in Tehran's most-feared prison, where she's held for her father's anti-regime sentiments, she tells her story in flashback. She describes her childhood days in Tehran and shares her experiences as a college student in the U.S., where she falls in love with Jack, only to see their relationship torn asunder by the strong influence of their disparate religions. Leila returns to Iran, marries, and offers a portrait of life as an Iranian wife under Islamic rule. She escapes from prison and joins her parents in Paris, where she ends her story on a note of hope.
