Caught Between Two Worlds is a documentary that depicts the diverse lives of Iranians in the US who make up a nation in exile. They live in Los Angeles, New York, Washington D.C. and other US cities. Many of them left Iran after the 1979 revolution, the departure of the Shah and the start of the Islamic Republic. They are artists, political activists, journalists, academics, Moslem and Jewish, young and old. The film shows the complexities of the Iranian experience in the U.S. for those who have made it their home.
