1985. Tehran. Iran-Iraq war. For 'Marmar' it is another ordinary afternoon at the grandparents'. The echo of 'Death to America' chants from the morning school assembly mixes with 'The voice of America'; grandad's favourite radio program. Marmar is waiting for granny to make her a dress exactly the same as the glamorous American Popstar; Bright red. No straps.
