From its gripping opening shot through to its fateful finale, this quietly devastating character study of one woman’s resilience in the face of injustice is powerfully performed and precisely composed. While her every move is restricted by the men around her, single mum, Mina, is determined to maintain her fragile independence. She juggles holding down a job and supporting her deaf daughter while fighting for justice. When the mysterious Reza offers to help she dares to dream that her life will be easier.

 

 

“There's an elegance to the filmmaking as this story unravels its themes of societal prejudice, justice and remorse that elevates every frame.”
