Ballad of a White Cow
Tue 30 Nov
According to the judge, it was Allah's intention to let Babak, Mina's husband, be put to death - otherwise it would not have happened. Mina does receive financial compensation for the suffering caused by the court, but also starts a quiet protest in her daughter's and her own interest. And when she almost out of money, an old friend of Babak's suddenly shows up: he still a debt to pay to Babak and has now come to settle it. Mina slowly lets him into her life, not knowing that it's not just a financial debt he has come to pay.
