A bold look at unequal justice.

Actress and director Niki Karimi stars as Sahar, an Iranian TV and documentary director who becomes involved in the plight of Malineh, a young woman who appeared in her latest film. Malineh is desperate to sell one of her kidneys in order to raise money for the defense of her mother, who faces hanging on a charge of murdering her husband. A courageous work that interrogates the responsibilities of filmmakers and the media while exposing the treatment of women in Iranian society. [12A]
