Eva Mulvad’s award-winning documentary offers a heartbreaking portrait of Leila and Sahand, an Iranian couple who are forced to flee for their lives from Tehran where their secret affair and illegitimate child are both considered crimes, punishable by death.
Together with their four-year-old son Mani they take refuge in Turkey with dreams of a new life, seeking asylum to either Canada or the US. Intimately filmed over a five-year period, we follow their brave quest to be safe together as a family.
