The 1979 revolution drastically changes the image of Iran. It becomes the Islamic Republic. The US embassy is stormed and hostages are taken. They are released 444 days later. Yet relations between the USA and Iran remain dark and bitter until today. The US embassy in Iran does not open its doors. The leaders of  both countries threaten each other as enemies. Meanwhile a large portion of the Iranian people hopes for a reconciliation with the USA.

In 2004  Mr. Naderi, a Jack-of-all-trades from Tehran, worries about the possibility of war between the US and Iran and decides to single-handedly end the over 20 years of animosity between these two countries. He decides to weave a unique double-sided Persian carpet to present to the US on behalf of his country. On one side of the 50 Sq ft carpet are the portraits of all the US presidents and on the other side the flags of all 50 American states. Mr. Naderi attempts to begin a dialog between Bush and Ahmadinejad to better relations by presenting the carpet, but is unsuccessful.

In 2015, after 12 years of failed attempts, Mr. Naderi sees that relations between East and West are on the mend. The nuclear talks are being held and there is hope that the sanctions of over 35 years will be lifted. The stubborn Mr. Naderi once again starts pushing for a formal presentation of what he calls “The Peace Carpet” to the White House in order to show the world that Iranians are a peace-loving nation…
