"After years of working on Iran and Middle East politics, this is perhaps the most engrossing and easily digestible film I've ever come across. A phenomenal educational tool that explains often misunderstood and complex issues in US-Iranian relations."

- Sanaz Meshkinpour, Middle East Program Coordinator, Global Exchange
