Movie Info

A convicted Iranian murderer who has been sentenced to death struggles to comprehend his impending doom while languishing in a Tehran prison in director Hamid Rahmanian's existential drama. When convicted of certain serious crimes in Iran, the family of the victim can either choose to pardon the perpetrator of the crime, pursue financial compensation from the offender, or opt for public execution -- a weighty choice that demands the family of the victim meet with the convict before the sentence is carried out. Though the family of Mansour's (Hossein Yari) victim have chosen the most final of the three options, their repeated absence at the scheduled meeting that must take place before his execution forces the convicted killer into a personal purgatory of doubt and angst more torturous than any death sentence. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Dame sobh (Day Break)

As apolitical as it is poignant. Dame sobh lays bare the stark reality of state sponsored retribution and then leaves you to draw your own conclusions. Viscerally powerful stuff.
