In this 57-minute film, Director Mohsen Abdolvahab takes a look at Saideh Ghods' life and how it changed when her two-year-old daughter Kiana was diagnosed with cancer. Confronting her daughter's suffering made her aware of the suffering of so many impoverished families in hospital corridors. Saideh Ghods founded MAHAK over 25 years ago. Today it is one of the most highly functioning and trusted charities in Iran. MAHAK has helped and saved countless children to date.
