Home yet far away: The Feminine Iran, the masculine u.s., it's not a gender issue

Iranian immigrant Sabereh struggles to reconcile her two homelands in conflict - the U.S. and Iran. In California, she and several housemates rally to save their cooperative house in a rapidly gentrifying neighborhood. The contentious process reminds her of a five-year détente with her father in Iran who demanded that she choose either Iran or the US as her “real home”. Sabereh’s experiences as an Iranian-American woman searching for home, peace, family, and belonging lead to a new understanding of the roots of the U.S.-Iran political conflict.
