Woven around the directorial couple’s correspondence, this lyrical film examines the trauma and censorship connecting a woman’s experience of her body to the history of her native Iran. Beginning a few weeks after the couple’s meeting, the film ostensibly charts their artistic and romantic relationship. But as her body undergoes mortification and generation—being ravaged by cancer, then moving through stages of pregnancy—it becomes the muse for her reflections on Iran’s political history. Both emerge as sites of remembrance and reconstruction, as the couple’s letters are fused with archival footage of Iran, family photos, their art, and scenes from their life together, with the film itself epitomising the mysterious connections between love, loss, family, and the infinite elasticity of memory, body and nation.
