An Iranian couple are forced to flee for their lives from Tehran in Eva Mulvad's (A Cherry Tale, A Modern Man) documentary about a family desperate to start a new life. Available to rent on QFT Player.

Leila and Sahand are a couple engaged in a long-term adulterous relationship in a country where their secret affair and illegitimate child could lead to them receiving the death penalty. 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, Mulvad's film follows the trio's brave quest to be safe together as a family, through a series of ecstatic highs and extraordinary lows.

"[An] aching and intimate documentary...the emotion and drama of it all is staggering, and so are the stakes." - Indie Wire
