Linda dreamed of becoming an actress. Her very first acting role was that of the leading lady opposite Bijan, one of Iran’s most handsome leading men! The realization of her dream also began her journey of love, great loss, and brutal betrayal.

Filled with emotion, Stella Riley tells Linda’s story, as it is indeed her own.
