Synopsis

They are blissfully happy together, have a cute little son and are ready for a new start. But there’s a big problem: Leila and Sahand are both still married to other people. And in Iran, there are severe penalties for adultery.

The couple flees to neighboring Turkey to apply for refugee status and escape the perilous situation they face in Tehran. The director Eva Mulvad follows the lovers over six years as they start a new life and laboriously progress through the asylum procedure. We see their fear and uncertainty, although their trust in each other always comes first. Mulvad films their hardest and happiest moments.
