Mehdi Dibaj had been imprisoned for 10 years when in 1993 a judge issued an official death sentence. Dibaj's only crime was converting from Islam to Christianity. A copy of the official execution order leaked to Haik Hovsepian, the leader of the Evangelical Christians in Iran. Haik, at peril to his own life, released the document and launched an international campaign to bring an end to the civil rights violations of the Iranian Islamic courts. International pressure mounted, and the Iranian government was forced to release Dibaj at the eleventh hour. But there is a price to pay.An award-winning, expertly documented story, A Cry from Iran includes hidden camera footage filmed in Iran during the actual events.
