Akram only discovered her talent for painting at the age of 50, expressing herself through powerful, primitive, colourful canvases. But this uneducated, Iranian grandmother, married since the age of nine, must negotiate permission from her husband to realise her dream of attending her own exhibition in Paris. A warm and revealing portrait of an unlikely artist and a traditional Iranian marriage.
