Maryam Nasirizadesh lives in the rocky and arid landscapes of southern Iran. For 20 years, she’s earned her living thanks to the strength of her body. Every day, she repeats the same gestures: breaking the stone, pushing it, pulling it, making it fall from the boulders and then reselling it. Back home, she looks after her 78-year- old husband. A routine that challenges the meaning of life.

“Have you ever stepped on an anthill without thinking twice? That’s what our job was like. You stop seeing the people on the screen as people. You can’t, for your own sanity” Filmed entirely in aerial view, Find Fix Finish takes us into the mind of drone pilots, men and women whose mission is to “target” – and kill – human beings.
