The Ruby Tear Catcher is the heartwarming story of an Iranian woman whose life is uprooted during the Islamic Revolution in Iran in the 1970s and ’80s. While jailed in Tehran’s most-feared prison, where she’s held for her father’s anti-régime sentiments, Leila tells her story in flashback. She describes her childhood days in Tehran and shares her experiences as a college student in the U.S., where she falls in love with Jack, only to see their relationship torn asunder by the strong influence of their disparate religions. Ultimately, hope triumphs in the face of fanaticism and intolerance.
