"Face to Face" tells the story of two women in search of their female identity: Tahirih Qurratu'l-`Ayn(1817-1852) and Forough Farrokhzad (1934-1967); the two leading poets of their generations who made a strong commitment to women's rights in Iran. To-date, they are both considered role models of Iranian women's movement.
