Episode Summary

Before the Revolution
The Islamic Revolution in Iran is seen through the eyes of Israelis who lived and worked in Tehran at the end of the Shah's reign. At the time, the Israeli community enjoyed a special relationship with the Shah due to arms deals and trade agreements between their countries; and lived in luxury as a result. The arrangement almost blinded them to the changes going on within Iranian society. Included: archival footage; and remarks from diplomats, Mossad agents, businessmen and their families.moreless
