Storyline

In July 2003, Canadian journalist/photographer Zahra Kazemi was tortured and murdered by the Iranian security agents after she attempted to report on the growing opposition movement in Iran. Journalist/Reporter Jane Kokan risks her personal safety to follow in Kazemi's footsteps, traveling undercover to Iran to investigate the clerical regime's latest crackdown on students, journalists and dissidents. She goes undercover in Iran to obtain secret pictures showing the medieval barbarity the Mullahs authorities want to keep hidden. Iran has been labeled part of the Axis of Evil but as Jane discovers, the real evil is the state-sponsored torture and murder of its own young. Written by Kaaveh
