Joy in Iran follows three "Clowns Without Borders" on their roadshow through Iran - in homes for orphans and street kids, hospitals, psychiatric clinics and refugee camps. It highlights human encounter, tells about odd but although humorous situations and stories. The film becomes a moving reflexion of the power of humor and love and the long-lasting, healing impact on traumatised children and adults. Last but not least it is a human portrait of a controversary country with never seen aspects.
