Maryam Moghaddam, Behtash Sanaeeha / IR, 2020 / 105 min.
If your spouse is executed for a crime he didn’t commit, is that the will of Allah, or a miscarriage of justice? This third feature from Iranian directing duo Maryam Moghadam and Behtash Sanaeeha portrays the situation of a combative widow.
Mina decides to take on the government, who want to give her financial compensation for the wrongful execution of her husband, Babak. Money, Mina says, won’t bring her husband back. Or their deaf daughter’s father.
