Iranian Director Ali Abbasi brings us a film driven by outrage…conveyed by his sometimes graphic images. This real story from 20-years ago was shot in Jordon to avoid censorship by Iranian authorities. Sixteen sex workers were the victims of a serial killer operating in the face of indifferent policing. A female reporter senses that this ridding society of “corrupt women” will continue unabated until the killer is exposed. She partners with a male crime reporter knowing how dangerous it will be to go undercover..
