This is a portrait of Shirin Ebadi, Nobel Peace Prize winner: the woman, the activist, the resistant; in her own words. As the new symbol for the fight for democracy in Iran, she expresses herself on the state of Iranian society today, as well as on global issues such as peace, humanity, and education. There is no room for spectacular images in her fight for democracy. Through judicial work and organizations, Shirin Ebadi works as a militant in a day to day battle for the emergence of a new Iranian resistance.
