Synopsis

Bahari, a Tehran-born journalist with Canadian citizenship, traveled to Iran in 2009 to interview Mir-Hossein Mousavi, the challenger to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. After sending footage to the BBC of rioting that broke out after Ahmadinejad's win, Bahari was arrested and, over a period of 188 days, interrogated and tortured. Bahari's wife fought to keep the story in the media and campaigned for his freedom, which he won only after promising the Iranian government to act as a spy for them. Based on the book "Then They Came For Me: A Family's Story Of Love, Captivity And Survival," written by Maziar Bahari.
