Description

A crowd of people in Iran gather to watch the execution of a young woman accused of adultery. She begs everyone for help. But the crowd all watch in fear, except for one particular young man who cannot remain silent. The film is inspired by the true event of execution of the 16-year-old Atefeh Sahaleh in 2004.
