poster Mitra (Kaweh Modiri, NL 2020)
37 years after her daughter Mitra was murdered in Iran, Haleh (Jasmin Tabatabai) leads a quiet, successful life in the Netherlands. All is upended when she suspects that Leyla, who betrayed Mitra, turns up. The woman has only recently moved to the country and is herself a loving mother. She doesn’t seem to recognise Haleh; so is it Leyla? Haleh with help from her brother Mohsen (Mohsen Namjoo), tries to find out.
