In short-yes. It's about an Iranian Islamic doc who lived in Michigan with his wife and young daughter. He's not accustomed to American norms so he decides to take them on "vacation" to Iran an Islamic driven territory. Where he now begins to abuse his wife and tries to keep her by force but she eventually runs away and return to the safe land.
Yes, it is an excellent film based on a true story, though it is not for the faint of heart by times. If you are triggered by scenes of spousal or child abuse, maybe give it a pass. If facts are important to you, there are really only two scenes that are fabrications. I recall there is a scene with a sandstorm at one point. In reality, there were no sandstorms, although there was some heavy snowfall in the mountains. There is a scene of an attempted rape; this outright did not happen and was likely the studio's addition.
