film follows the 45-year old Swedish woman, Kristina Paltén, before, during
and after her lone run across Iran. Kristina ran 1144 miles during 58 days
with the purpose to challenge her own prejudices against a country, a culture
and people she had never previously been in contact with and knew little
about. She wanted to explore what a muslim country meant to a lone woman
running across an entire country. Prior to her trip she had been told she
would be raped, murdered and kidnapped by her friends and family. She planned
a running route but other then that nothing was planned or organized. She was
to be completely vulnerable and dependent on the people she met along her way
for finding somewhere to sleep and food. The main themes of the film is the
conflict between her very human need and desire to trust people and her
inflicted fear for the unknown as well as her own need for personal space and
the method she chose for the trip - to meet people.
