Storyline

The educated Fariba Tabrizi flies from Teheran to Germany expecting to have asylum, since she is persecuted in Iran due to her lesbian relationship with her beloved Shirin. However, her application is denied by the authorities and Fariba has to return to her home country. When her recent acquaintance Siamak, who is grieving the death of his brother, commits suicide, Fariba assumes his identity and status of political refugee and is sent to a refugee camp in a German village. Fariba finds an illegal work in a cabbage factory and she has many difficulties for not having bath with the other male workers. She becomes close to her colleague Anne and they fall in love for each other. However, prejudice and her illegal condition jeopardize her exile in Germany.

Angelina Maccarone gives sensitive direction to a great story.
28 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One has to always wonder just how much people must suffer because of religious superstition and prejudice.

Fariba (Jasmin Tabatabai) is trying to escape persecution in Iran because of her sexual identity. She manages to assume the identity of a fellow refugee that commits suicide. Now, she is hiding as a man in Germany.

Unfortunately, she starts to fall in love with a coworker Anne (Anneke Kim Sarnau). Things progress, but as luck would have it, interference by two German louts cause her to be returned to Iran. Where it goes from there, we can only imagine, but Tabatabai's outstanding performance has us hoping for her swift return.
