The video is eponymous with the title of a novel by Jack London, which was published in 1908 in the US. In this novel, some of the writer’s socialist leanings are evident. The book was banned many times either before and after the Revolution. The film comprises three episodes concerning the book — the first, before the 1979 Iranian Revolution; second, during the Revolution; and third, after the Revolution; and records the changes in society from 1977 until 1980.
