Iranian poet Forough Farrokhzad takes an intimate look inside a leprosy colony in Tebriz, Iran in this renowned documentary. With stories from these forgotten people accented by poetic voiceover from Farrokhzad, the film digs deep into the heart of hopelessness within the human spirit. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi
