It was the start of a brand new life, but Tom Allen's dream journey takes an unlikely detour when he falls in love with an Iranian-Armenian girl.

23-year-old Englishman Tom Allen is all set for a successful office-bound career, but he finds himself persisted by a question many of us face: isn't there more to life than this? Leaving everything and everyone behind, Tom sets off without maps or guidebooks on a quest to find the answer. But his new nomadic lifestyle is thrown into turmoil when he meets an Iranian-Armenian girl and falls in love. Tom does everything to keep his dream alive, but is forced to choose between her and the road. His decision takes him to the depths of the Sahara Desert, where - amidst challenges unimaginable - he catches a glimpse of the answer he set out to find. Filmed by Tom over four years with cinematic ambition, Janapar - named after an Armenian word for "journey" - is an honest and life-affirming tale of finding what you're looking for when you least expect it.

Did You Know?


Tom Allen: What is the appeal of not knowing where you're going? I don't know... I think it's because we don't have that much risk in our daily lives any more these days. So to do something like this is a way of... refreshing the senses, and getting those, you know, getting those instincts going again.

A great film, inspiring & funny. I saw it at a private screening in London. I recommend the film to anyone you don't need to be interested in bikes as the film is really about one mans journey. Look out for the great 1 liner from Tenny 'Public?'brilliant. If you are interested in going on a journey of whatever kind you will find the film inspiring and informative. The filming was done entirely by Tom Allen whilst he was travelling and demonstrates what can be achieved with little equipment or previous knowledge of the film industry. The editing is superb and the story is well told in an ionteresting way without becoming confusing.
