Synopsis
During the Shah’s regime, a 17-year-old Makhmalbaf, together with a girl, attacked a policeman to disarm him. They ended up wounding each other, the girl disappears, and Makhmalbaf receives a five-year jail sentence. Two decades later, when Makhmalbaf is an established director, the policeman turns up at his house looking for a role. Makhmalbaf decides to make a film about the incident.

While this could lead to a simple act of reconciliation, A Moment of Innocence takes a different course – an autobiographical account by two, a revisiting of their younger selves and a test of their past actions. Fact and fiction, past and present, all conflate in the reconstruction of the event, leading to a climax that brings them back to a crossroad.
