About We the Innumerable: After the 2009 presidential election in 
Tehran, Iran, Roya and her husband, Siavash, become targets of the 
state for participating in nationwide protests against the election 
result. Siavash is murdered, and Roya is imprisoned and put under 
extreme pressure to record a confessional stating that her husband 
was a Revolutionary Guard force who was killed by the enemies of
the state. The opera is the heroic journey of an Iranian woman who 
protects the truth in the face of fear and violence.
