"When a nationalistic wealthy landowner's idealist son falls for a non-muslim prostitute, he finds himself in a conflict between his feelings and politics under the shadow of the " Events of September 6th-7th in 1955.
This is one of the films where I don't hesitate to give it a fat 10. The story follows several people trying to escape from Iran by going of the hilly border to Turkey and from there to Europe. The story centers around two little children and two men, a relative and a friend. Their goal is to bring the children to Austria, where the parents already are.
Along the way other refugees enter the story. After they reach the border their problems just begin. Now they are unprotected and have to fear the Turkish Police and the Iranian Secret Service. They have to get recognized as a political refugee from the UN as the only way to get to Europe officially. Everyday they stand in line to get this paper, while living in sleazy hotels, waiting, hoping. Desperation creeps into every corner.
Different fate awaits them. I'm not going to tell you anymore but wish you check-it out for yourself. Our news is often about foreigners, refugees, racism but little do we know what it means to leave everything behind and head for a better life. If you want to find out, go and see this film! The actors and the direction is excellent, the whole film is perfectly done.
