Rayhaneh Jabbari meets a new business client in Tehran in 2007. After locking her in his apartment, the man tries to rape her, and she kills him in defence. She is arrested the same day and her trial ends in a death sentence. Using secret material obtained from the young woman’s family, the film tells the story of Rayhaneh and, at the same time, the impossible position of women in a strictly patriarchal system.
