    The Icy Sun, a controversial Afghan film made last year about a woman dealing with rape, is struggling to be accepted in Afghanistan, a conservative country, due to a scene of limited nudity.

    Fereshta Kazemi, the main actress in the film, talks to Al Jazeera about her ambitions surrounding the film, which aims to break the taboo of discussing sexual assaults against women.
