While working in Iran last year, journalist Roxana Saberi made international headlines when she was dragged from her home, detained, and arrested by intelligence agents. Cut off from the outside world, Saberi was accused of espionage and later sentenced to eight years in Evin, Iran’s most notorious prison. After months of appeals, the charges against Saberi were finally reduced and she was released and returned back to the U.S.

Saberi breaks her silence to tell her harrowing story of imprisonment and ultimate release. She also sheds light on Iran’s political regime and the current challenges facing the country.
