  1. 1. Veils

    "Veils" is a compelling narrative that explores the cultural and personal conflicts faced by two Iranian cousins with contrasting worldviews. The story delves into the complexities of identity, tradition, and liberation as the young women grapple with their roles in a society marked by political upheaval and strict social norms. As one cousin embraces the security of an arranged marriage and the other seeks education and independence in America, their divergent paths illuminate the struggles of modern Iranian women caught between the allure of Western freedoms and the comforts of familiar customs. Their journey is a poignant reflection on the veils, both literal and metaphorical, that define and often confine their lives.
