A Cry From Iran – the untold story of Iranian Christian Martyrs pulls back the veil on the closed Islamic country of Iran, to reveal a moving Christian story of commitment, love and sacrifice.
Iran, 1993, a judge issues an official death sentence to a man whose only crime is converting from Islam to Christianity. A copy of the official execution order is leaked to pastor Haik Hovsepian, the leader of Evangelical Christians in Iran. Haik, at peril of his own life, releases the document and launches an international campaign to bring an end to the civil rights violations of the Iranian Islamic courts. International pressure mounts and the Iranian government is forced to release Dibaj at the eleventh hour. But there is a price to pay…
A Cry From Iran is an award winning documentary true story produced by the martyr’s sons. An inspiring story of a vibrant Christian church inside Iran, surviving under impossible odds and includes hidden camera footage filmed in Iran during the actual events. It’s a story of triumph through tragedy and overcoming hatred with love.
