Taher* (father), Donya* (mother),  Arezoo* (26, married and has a 1-year-old son) and Farah* (16). 

This Christian family with Muslim background has been through a lot of hardship in Iran. One of the things that happened to them was the arrest of father Taher. After his release they had to flee the country. Now they live as refugees in Turkey, which comes with a lot of challenges.
