This is a 26.5" x 37.75" Iranian poster designed by Bateni to promote the 1999 Kamal Tabrizi film Sheida starring Leila Hatami based on a story by Reza Maghsoodi with cinematography by Mohammad Aladpoush. Plot summary: When Farhad [Parsa Pirouzfar] was wounded in the war he temporarily lost his sight and was transferred to a field hospital. A nurse there named Sheida [Leila Hatami] was impressed by his determination to recover and found she was able to comfort him by reading to him from the Koran. The two became emotionally attached to each other but were separated when Farhad was released from the hospital. Farhad went back to the front looking for Sheida, but the war ended and this made the search difficult. Farhad's father and mother insisted that he become engaged to a wealthy girl who was thinking of leaving Iran. When it became clear that an old war wound was threatening Farhad's health his fiance broke their engagement and left the country. Farhad was hospitalized at a hospital where Sheida was working, but he did not see her. Then upon the insistence of Farhad's mother Sheida read the Koran to him again and with the help of love she was able to restore his health.
