Rafi Pitts' devastating drama follows a young Iranian woman's struggle to bring her husband's murderers to justice. When her husband is shot dead after being accused of stealing a horse, Sanam (Roya Nonahali) is left with the arduous task of working the family farm alone with her 10-year-old son, Issa (Ismail Amani). As she fights for compensation from the disinterested authorities, the distraught Issa, who witnessed his father's execution, is left alone with his rage and sorrow. Subtle and deeply affecting, 'Sanam' paints a realistic and compelling portrait of the social inequalities that abound in a remote rural community.
