Synopsis

Iranian social issues are intimately explored in this thoughtful prison drama from director Manijeh Hekmat. When midwife Mitra (Roya Nonahali) is sentenced to an extended stay in prison for the murder of her mother's abusive husband, devout Muslim warden Tehereh (Roya Taymourian) delivers a series of punishments in hopes of breaking the young offender, including a harsh reprimand for delivering a baby in her cell while prison guards take shelter during an Iraqi bombing raid. Gaining a bit of respect for Mitra when she attempts to save a new inmate from a brutal rape, Tehereh plays a protective role when Mitra's juvenile delinquent daughter, Sepideh (Pegah Ahangarani), is imprisoned years later. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
