      Iran is estimated to be second to China regarding the amount of people that were executed in 2004. Should there be an age put in to place in which a person is too young to be executed? According to a signed agreement of the International Convention on Civil and Political Rights, Iran has vowed not to execute any person under the age of 18. However, there appears to be a loophole, as the clerical courts do not answer to parliament. They inside obey Ayatollah Khamenei, their religious supreme leader. This makes it almost impossible for human rights activists to call them to account.

      During the year of Atefah’s death, there were approximately 159 people executed following the Islamic law of the country based on the Sharia code. Sharia law has been Iran’s highest legal authority since the revolution. Sex outside of marriage is a capital crime in Iran, alongside murder and drug smuggling.

      When Atefah was executed in Neja, Asieh Amini, a journalist had heard rumours this young girl was merely 16 years of age. These rumours led to further investigations and when Asieh met with her family, both her birth and death certificate revealed she was born in 1988. This documentary, Iran: Execution of a Teenage Girl explores this case of execution, in which a 16 year old girl was executed. What crime had she committed that deserved such punishment?
