Storyline

Reporter Maziar Bahari is accused of being a spy and imprisoned by the Iranian government shortly after a "Daily Show" correspondent interviews him in Iran in 2009. He spends the next three months in Iran’s most notorious prison, enduring brutal interrogation sessions at the hands of a man he knows only by his smell: Rosewater. Bahari later reveals he was not imprisoned because of the TV show interview, but because his captors wanted an excuse to lock him up.
