Retributive Minds is a narrative short film in which Javid, an Iranian living abroad, returns to his home country to mourn the sudden death of his sister. Throughout this film, we understand that his sister has been the subject of an ideologically-motivated murder. It is the law in Iran that he is now responsible to make the decision on the perpetrators ultimate punishment. Retributive Minds utilizes a specific law in Iran, Qisas, to explore the serious ethical and personal dilemmas that a judiciary system influenced by religion can pose to an individual.
