This is a heartbreaking true story of a childhood coinciding with regime change and war in Iran. It is seen through the eyes of Marjane Satrapi who grew up a tomboy, larking around in sneakers and getting into scraps with boys. At the age of ten she goes to school and finds that her entire world has changed. Girls and boys enter the shool building through different doors and Marjane, no longer allowed to wear her boysih clothes, is forced to cover up in a long dark robe. Her strong will gets her in to several close encounters with her teachers at school and later the country's morality police. Marjane grows up with Iraqi bombs falling on her street and strict rules governing her life. Eventually her parents decide she would be better off with an education abroad and send her to Europe. Despite the freedom of Europe, she lisses her family and her country despite its flaws, and has returned to Iran before long. She is in a brief marriage upon her return but when that fails Marjene leaves her country for good.
