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