On January 8, 2020, Flight PS752 from Tehran to Kiev was intentionally shot down by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

Everyone on board was killed.

Among the passengers, were fifty-five Canadian citizens and thirty permanent residents who were returning to Canada from Iran. BROKEN BY THE WIND is an intimate portrait of how this ruthless act of terror has impacted the life of one loving husband and father, Shahin Moghaddam.
