Synopsis

Mohammad Rasoulof writes and directs this drama about Iranian operatives trained to torture and kill freethinking writers and academics who have made a living questioning the politics and political leaders of their country. The two main characters in the story are Khosrow and Morteza, Iranian soldiers whose main job is to get information to report back to their superiors. As it is revealed that one of their targets possesses a manuscript containing accounts of an event that could implicate the Iranian government in an attempted murder of a bus-load of people, the soldiers' boss orders them to do whatever necessary to retrieve the document. Due to the subject matter of the film, details of the cast and crew are to remain undisclosed to protect their identities.
