About the Fifth Reaction and director Milani:
Vajonesh Panjom (The Fifth Reaction) is the story of a woman who leaves her wealth, home, and children after the death of her husband. The films topics draw clear parallels to life in a theocratic Iran.

The IRI government once brought charges against Milani due to the storyline of her film Nimeh-e Pinhan (The Hidden Half). Despite receiving permission to produce the film from the reformist Khatami government, she was imprisoned in 2001. A backlash from many world-famous directors caused the government to release her after two weeks, but official charges were never dropped. Milani continues to work and produce films under conditions of censorship.
