My Stolen Face

Neda Soltani

She simply uploaded her photo on Facebook and then the nightmare began.

Iran, 2009: In the course of protests against the disputed election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Neda Agha-Soltan is shot to death on the streets of Tehran. Together with the amateur video of her tragic death, international media spread the photo of the beautiful young woman, and she becomes the icon of Iran’s opposition. The only problem is that the photo belongs to another woman: Neda Soltani who has uploaded her photo on Facebook. A dramatic mix-up with incredible consequences; Iranian secret service hounds Neda Soltani, media ignores her plea to stop running the photo, and she is eventually charged with treason. She uses one last chance and escapes.
