'Only the Devil Lives Without Hope' is a common saying in Uzbekistan. An unbreakable hope is the driving force behind a young woman called Dilya, who became a human rights activist the day her brother Iskandar was thrown in prison, accused of being a terrorist.

Now living in exile in Sweden, for years Dilya has been fighting to prove Iskandar's innocence, and openly challenging the dictatorship in her home country.

Swedish filmmaker Magnus Gertten has created a chilling real-life thriller about love and betrayal: about a woman whose fight for her brother's freedom brings her closer to the workings of the regime than she could ever have imagined.
