'If customers can't buy Iranian goods, the show stops'

Iran's economy has been hit by US sanctions and more recently, deadly protests over a fuel price increase. The BBC's Ivana Davidovic looks into why ordinary citizens feel so let down and how the country's booming tech sector is navigating the uncertainty. We hear from the Iranian boss of a manufacturing company and an internet entrepreneur, both of whom contributed anonymously for fear of repercussions from talking to the BBC.
