Drama. Two men fall in love with a strongminded, fearless woman who arrives in an area of Iran once owned by her family, now ruined in the war with Iraq. The title (RED RIBBONS) refers to the ribbons which indicate a path that one of the men, a slightly odd character, has cleared of mines; the other man, also rather eccentric, is a tank dealer whom the woman attempts to trade with, since there is still a tank on the family land.
