1st Post-Hope you can help!

Saw this documentary in English on cable in the USA sometime after 2000. It was about the female director trying to find a missing woman (relative?)overseas in the Middle East. Sorry I can’t remember exact country, but it was focused on women’s lack of rights there. Director travels to where missing woman was living and tries to investigate what happened. Something about the missing woman having or working in a beauty shop, having an affair and possibly being murdered by her husband’s family. The director may have been Canadian. So, after the majority of the movie, the director is somehow made to admit that the whole thing was a lie. I think it was a small scandal in the film world. Hope this rings a bell with someone. Thanks!
