Trivia

Abyar traveled to related areas to collect information about the Rigi brothers and their ethnic group, the Rigi. She presented Abdolmalek Rigi as a member of the Rigi ethnic group which has a background in the armed conflict in Sistan and Baluchestan. In a press conference at the 37th Fajr International Film Festival, Abyar called the Rigi ethnic group "a respectable tribe" and said: "They wanted a film made to differentiate them from the Rigi brothers".

Dark, Intensitying and Horrific.
21 October 2020 | by RuralSoulSee all my reviews

This movie is so intense and dark that I couldn't even absorb it without pausing. This Iranian female filmmaker is tough as nails in her cinematography. The depiction is so real that it totally nailed the tag 'based on real events'. Certainly tells you that how blind we can be when there's a hope of love.
