Kristina Paltén, a lone Swedish woman, began her run through Iran on September 5th 2015 becoming the first woman to ever run across Iran. Kristina was inspired to run across Iran for three main reasons: the beautiful topography, the long-distance journey and her own prejudices against the country which she only knew about through western news coverage. The film follows Kristina before, during and after her run and capturing the physical as well as psychological journey as she challenges her fears and prejudices by meeting the people she has heard so little about, the people along the road in Iran.
