Storyline

Facing death, terminally ill Parvis Karimpour wants to reconcile with his daughter Nasrin. He and his fellow African travellers are dumped from a boat by the Spanish coast at dawn. He makes his way to Madrid where he believes his only child, who fled from Iran years ago, may now live. Finding shelter in a city which is battered by the economic crisis, Parvis meets two other struggling migrants. The Italian Fabrizio, a failed piano player, survives on odd cleaning jobs. Spoilt young German Almut, on the other hand, has followed her boyfriend to Madrid. Looking for a direction in life she dreams of opening a jewellery shop. The search for Nasrin becomes their common quest. Parvis regains hope, while his newfound optimism snaps Fabrizio and Almut out of their lethargy. Following a new clue the three set off northwards in Almut's car. Written by Anonymous

Touching, understated and relevant
30 October 2016 | by globealoneSee all my reviews

At a time when the issue of migration is the political hot topic of the day, this wonderful little film examines the issue from the point of view of Parvis, a middle-aged Iranian ma who has smuggled himself into Spain across the sea. Mortally ill, Parvis is searching for his estranged daughter to make peace with her before he dies.

Arriving in Madrid - a city in the grip of a deep recession - he is alone and lost. But he makes friends with Fabrizio, a failed musician and Almut, a poor little rich girl. Together they go in search of Parvis' daughter.

A quiet, thoughtful and humane take on an issue which frequently creates more heat than light, this moving and beautifully acted film was deservedly awarded Best Feature at Cardiff Independent Film Festival 2015
