What Tehranis' Wishes Tell Us About Iran

A moving new video asks Tehran residents, "What's your wish for today?" The answers may surprise you.

There's a moving new video produced by a young Iranian artist Ali Molavi, who asked people in Iran a difficult question: "What's your wish for today?"

It's called "One Question Fifty Answers - Tehran."

"Peace of mind," says one woman.

Another says she just wants her children to be happy.

One man says all he wants is an end to inflation and rising prices, while another says he hopes Iran's ties improve with the rest of the world.
