Anoosh tells her that after his divorce, he had decided to return home with a false passport and a disguise. The Shah’s guards had recognized him, however, and he had been put in prison for nine years. Marjane tells him that she had heard he was tortured, and he tells her, “What my wife made me suffer was much worse.” He tells her that he recounts these stories because, “Our family memory must not be lost. Even if it’s not easy for you, even if you don’t understand it all.” Anoosh puts her to bed and gives her a carved swan that he had made out of bread while in prison. In the last scene, Marjane dreams of walking down a tree lined street, telling her friends that many people in her family are heroes and have gone to prison for their political beliefs.
