YALDA - A NIGHT FOR FORGIVENESS

a film by :Massoud Bakhshi

In Iran today: Maryam (22) accidentally kills her husband Nasser (65) and is sentenced to death. The only person who can save her is Mona (37), Nasser's daughter. All Mona has to do is appear on a popular live TV show and forgive Maryam. But forgiveness proves difficult when they are forced to relive the past.

French Synopsis :

Iran, de nos jours. Maryam, 22 ans, tue accidentellement son mari Nasser, 65 ans. Elle est condamnée à mort. La seule personne qui puisse la sauver est Mona, la fille de Nasser. Il suffirait que Mona accepte d’apparaitre dans une émission de téléréalité et de pardonner Maryam devant des millions de spectateurs. Mais le pardon est difficile quand le passé refait surface...
