ABC News correspondent Muhammad Lila reports from Iran this week, digging into a changing country few Americans understand.

We lunched with young engineering students in Tehran this week, asking them if they felt free in the Iranian capital.

Everyone rose his or her hands. "I do whatever I want," one student said.

A new Iranian president, Hassan Rouhani, came to power this year. One female student said Rouhani could bring about positive change for young people.

"Of course," she said. "If he will do the things he told us, of course."

And then she shared her thoughts on the American rock band Linkin Park.
