Winner of the Best Actress at Cannes 2022, this dramatic thriller follows a journalist who descends into the dark underbelly of the Iranian holy city of Mashhad to investigate a serial killer.
As the investigation and the journalist draws closer to exposing his crimes, the opportunity for justice grows harder to attain when the murderer is embraced by many as a hero. Based on the true story of the ‘Spider Killer’, this is a tense thriller reminiscent of David Fincher’s Zodiac.
