Baharak Bashar was thirteen when she fled from Iran to Belgium with her mother. Away from the ayatollah's and their religious narrow-mindedness. Towards the Free West. But half a life later, she goes the other way. Why is she, the militant freethinker, suddenly so interested in the Koran? And what about that young Syrian's statement that in democracies you can talk freely but no one listens?
