Act of Dishonour
Mena, a young bride-to-be, is not allowed to leave her home or have contact with her fiance Rahmat until married. She spends her life spying on the village and sharing chaste moments with Rahmat through a small hole in her garden wall, until she meets Mejgan - a female translator for a visiting film crew. Encouraged to take part in the film, Mena crosses the boundaries of her village's belief system, coming face-to-face with a society desperate to protect itself through tradition.

"A really difficult film to watch."
