    Letters from Ms. Iran tells the story of two Iranian women who meet virtually, through an email exchange. One, Farahnaz, has lived her entire life in Iran, while the other, Leyla, emigrated decades ago. Through their letters they each bring to life how they understand being Iranian, and in the process narrate an alternative history of Iran over the past fifty years.
