About the movie
The documentary describes a portrait of Iranian human rights activist Nasrin Sotodeh with secret footage. He was sentenced to 38 years in prison and 148 thrashing on seven charges., The charges included joining a group against the death penalty, giving interviews to foreign media, participating in peaceful rallies, speaking at the UN office and appearing in public without a hijab. In 2020, this sentence was reduced to 27 years. The fact that Sotodehi is currently in prison for human rights makes this documentary even more relevant. Nasrin Sotodehi is a woman whose fight for human rights is impressive. In 2021, according to the magazine "Times", he was named in the list of 100 most influential people.
