Synopsis
Mansour is a convicted murderer sentenced to death. In Iran, capital punishment for certain crimes gives the victim's family enormous control over the life of the perpetrator, they may pardon the offender, seek financial compensation or pursue a public execution. If they choose this final, ultimate retribution, they must meet with the convict before the punishment can take place. Mansour is trapped in his own inner purgatory as his victim's family repeatedly misses and delays this crucial encounter. Are they torturing him intentionally? Will they administer a last-minute pardon or will the death sentence be carried out? If so, when?
