Summary
"Tehran, June 12, 2009. Mohsen Abbaspour, an ordinary young man in his twenties - not particularly political, or ambitious, or worldly - casts the first vote of his life in Iran's tenth presidential election. Fed up with rising unemployment and inflation, he backs the reformist party and its candidate, Mir-Hossein Mousavi. Mohsen believes his vote will count. It wll not. Almost the instant the polls close, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will declare himself president by an overwhelming majority. And as the Western world scrambles to make sense of the brazenly fraudulent election. Mohsen, along with his friends and family and neighbors, will experience a sense of utter desolation followed by anger. In a matter of weeks, millions of Iranians will flow into the streets, chanting in protest, 'Death to the dictator!' Mohsen Abbaspour will be swept up in an uncontrollable and ultimately devastating chain of events"--Container
