Her parents would go into the streets at night and protest with others that have the same race as her because they didn’t like how they were treated and etc. The setting which it mostly took place is in Iran. Marji has to whear this veil in school, so they started a cultural revolution in Iran so that is when her parents started to protest in the streets.
