SYNOPSIS: ROSEWATER is the incredible true story of Canadian Iranian broadcast journalist Maziar Bahari. While covering the 2009 Iranian elections, Bahari was wrongfully arrested for treason and detained in Tehran's Evin prison where he developed an oddly symbiotic relationship with his interrogator. His universal story about love and freedom caught the attention of world leaders and mainstream media outlets across the globe, including Jon Stewart and The Daily Show. Based on the New York Times best-selling memoir, Then They Came For Me, this inspiring, brutal, and often times humorous series of events exhibits the courage of the human spirit and the will to survive for the people you love.
