Following Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's widely disputed re-election on 13 June 2009, demonstrations took place in major Iranian cities. The government banned the demonstrations, blocked media outlets and websites, and violently repressed the uprisings with police and militia. For a year, Iranian exiles, including the director of this film, who has remained anonymous, followed the ‘green revolution’ on the Internet from the street demonstrations to the so called trials. Between the anonymous amateur images and the official government images, the feelings expressed in emails they received and the official speeches, they tried to construct, from a distance, their own story of the events. This film tells one of those stories.
