Would you risk your life for what you believe in?

When God Sleeps is a rap-punk-rock documentary about Iranian musician Shahin Najafi, who is forced into hiding after hardline clerics issue a fatwa for his death, incensed by a rap song focusing on women’s and human rights. Risking his life every time he steps on a stage–especially as rising anti-Muslim sentiment escalates amidst the fallout from the Charlie Hebdo and Bataclan concert attacks in France–Shahin refuses to stop performing, even with a $100,000 bounty on his head.
