In the Name of the Father 2006
A college student is on a archeology expedition when she steps on a mine. Her father rushes to the hospital, a war veteran, and in a perfect example of irony, it is the same mine the father had placed a decade or so back to stop the Iraqis from attacking. The hill which the mine had been placed was supposed to have been cleared, but this one mine was missed.

And the characters are thrown in a story of pain. The father's guilt, the guilt of the friend who was responsible for clearing the mines, the girl who might lose her leg, the mother who has to carry the burdens of the family, and the boy who wants to marry the girl. The shadow of Iran's war looms all over them. A war that the world does not seem to fully appreciate. Iran faced Iraq and the world for eight years. Over one million Iranians died. This is the dark memory that exists in each Iranian, whether they know it or not. And like the college girl, who had nothing to do with the war, mines lie under each of our feet.
