A crowd of people in Iran gather to watch the execution of a young girl. She cries and begs everyone for help. Horrified, people look away as the girl is about to get hanged, but one particular bystander cannot remain silent.



-- Tara Atashgah emigrated from Iran to the US in 2006 to become a filmmaker. She has since earned a BA in film production and a masters in screenwriting. Her thesis film, For the Birds, is based in the execution of Atefeh Rajabi Sahaaleh, aged 16, in 2004.
