Iranian-Canadian journalist Maziar Bahari is detained by Iranian forces who brutally interrogate him under suspicion that he is a spy.
G2G Movies Watch Rosewater Plot
In 2009, London-based Iranian-Canadian journalist Maziar Bahari (Gael García Bernal) was detained in Iran for 118 days because of a satirical interview he gave regarding the country’s presidential election. Bahari was arrested and, while his pregnant fiancée waited for him, spent four months at Evin Prison being brutally interrogated. The film suggests his video evidence of the protests he provided to the BBC was the actual reason for his incarceration.
Bahari was usually blindfolded when being interrogated, and the sole distinguishing feature of his interrogator was that the interrogator smelled of rosewater.
