Maziar Bahari is a journalist of Iranian and Canadian heritage who is detained while he is in Iran on a special mission.Bahari was arrested by police, led by a man identifying himself only as "Rosewater," who tortured and interrogated him over the next 118 days. With Bahari's wife leading an international campaign to have her husband freed, and Western media outlets keeping the story alive, Iranian authorities released Bahari on $300,000 bail and the promise he would act as a spy for the government. 

Gerry and I both found the movie to be compelling and kept our interest. The fact that it was a true story was even more interesting to us. Had we not seen the movie we probably wouldn't have been aware that this happened as it wasn't a story we remembered on the news. It's a must see, and opens your eyes to many things, including the way some governments can take away the freedom of their people.
