A fact-based thriller about a Michigan housewife, Betty Mahmoody (Sally Field), who has come to the Middle East with her young daughter (Sheila Rosenthal) and Iranian-born doctor husband (Alfred Molina). It's just a vacation, her husband promises. But soon the horrible truth surfaces. Betty's husband is a fanatically religious Islamic and doesn't intend to bring his family back to America...ever. Locked in the house, Betty pretends to embrace her husband's faith and persuades his family to allow her enough freedom to go to the market. There she meets an Iranian who is not totally possessed by his faith and who agrees to help her escape with her daughter. Based on a book by Betty Mahmoody and William Hoffer.
Sally Field stars in this compelling, true story of an American who, along with her young daughter, becomes trapped in Iran after her husband tricks her into 'visiting' his homeland.
