How do we take responsibility for our past mistakes? In a thriller style, the director shows the daily life of a stepfamily, where everyone's secrets and the complex relationships gradually disentangle. A dense, deep and engaging film that illustrates this verse: "The truth will make you free" (John, 8:32)

"A film that gives us unique insight into the problems that arise from a case of sexual assault and the way an Iranian society deals with it. At the same time, the film is an immensely powerful tale of revenge that is universal and, in this case, told in a realistic way which features extremely painful dilemmas. It is a tale which uncovers the human condition on many levels. The Special Jury Prize goes to The Salesman by Asghar Farhadi."
