Winner of the 2012 Best Foreign Language Oscar, A Separation chronicles the struggles of a young couple in divorce court. The wife, Simin desires the divorce because her husband, Naader will not give her permission to leave Iran, nor to take their eleven-year-old daughter with her to have a better future.
