From Idaho to Iran

It's been branded part of the "Axis of Evil," but what is everyday Iran really like? Marcia Franklin takes us on a journey to one of the world's oldest civilizations.

Franklin traveled to Iran to film the small but determined environmental movement there. She talked with Vice President Massoumeh Ebtekar, the only woman in the Iranian national government and the director of Iran's Department of Environment. Vice President Ebtekar was also the spokesperson for the hostage-takers at the American Embassy in 1979.

Franklin also spoke with Shirin Ebadi, a lawyer and former judge who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2003.
