Revealing documentary on what is happening in Iran
11 March 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This is a great documentary on Iran, one of the few times the outer world comes to know the state of Iran after the revolution. We knew that gender inequality went to all time high, college enrollments of women dropped in Iran.etc. after the Islamic revolution. But mere statistics won't give you anything. Watch the story of two prostitutes who were forced into it due to strict Islamic laws. They live their lives in constant threats and danger for their children and themselves. They even slept with the chief of Religious Police of Iran many times to save themselves. Prostitution is rarely a choice for any girl and certainly in Iran the situation is much worse! I hope these girls are still safe and sound! All in all, a must watch!
