Under Shah Pahlavi's pro-Western police state thousands of Israelis lived in Iran. Protected by arms deals and complex financial ties, they enjoyed a luxurious lifestyle, willfully blind to the corruption and authoritarian cruelty around them. But in 1979 the Israeli's "Persian paradise", was shattered by the Islamist revolution. Through rare archive and potent interviews, this fascinating doc cleverly exposes the dark reality of a forgotten slice of history.
