Mina’s life is turned upside down when she learns that her husband Babak was innocent of the crime for which he was executed. The authorities apologize for the mistake and offer the prospect of financial compensation. Mina starts a silent battle against a cynical system for her own and her daughter’s sake.
Just as her money is running out, a stranger named Reza knocks at her door, saying he has come to repay a debt he owed to Babak. Mina is guarded at first, but increasingly lets Reza into her life, unaware of the secret that ties them to one another.

Directors’ statement:
It all started with a painful and bitter memory: an old wound which tormented our souls. With fear and hope, we told the story of our people’s enduring agony. This story of Mina’s Anguish, Longing for Long-lost justice. The Justice which had faded between the lines of a law. Ballad of a white cow tells the story of the victims and the ones that have suffered from injustice. The people whose lives were fully transformed by the death of an innocent person.
