It was an eye opening animation as it showed how a young girl viewed the revolution and how her childhood is filled with sadness, destruction and witnessing death of thousands of innocent people. In my opinion, this film has managed to be the voice to those Iranians who had to witness the revolution and was not able to tell the world about it. What the media has portrayed about this revolution and the actual truth varies broadly hence, this film gave another perspective to the situation. In terms of the art the direction, the use of black and white and the simple line drawings has worked very effectively in terms of conveying the essence of the film which is what it is like to be going through the revolution and struggle of finding one's identity.
