Her American grandmothers love affair with an Iranian physician took her from New York to Iran in 1931. Ardalan herself moved from San Francsico to rural Iran in 1964 with her Iranian American parents who barely spoke Farsi. After her parents divorce, Ardalan joined her father in Brookline, Massachusetts, where he had gone to make a new life- however improbably, after high school, Ardalan decided to move back to an Islamic Iran.

When she arrived, she discovered a world she hardly recognized, and one which demands a near-complete renunciation of the freedoms she experienced in the West. In time, she and her young family make the opposite migration and discover the difficulties, however paradoxical, inherent in living a free life in America.
