It was the love that brought Erdbrink to Iran twelve years ago. He is married and he is now in a country where only a few Western journalists are allowed to work. Erdbrink speaks the language fluently; he makes fickle jokes on the streets in Farsi as easily as arguing with his wife. That woman is the focus of this episode, besides his mother-in-law and many more women in 'a country where nothing is allowed, but everything is possible'.
