Saleem, an Indian student living in Leeds with his parents, meets Daz in a gay cruising spot, and they have a night of mutually enjoyable sex. Saleem is nonetheless ashamed of what he has done but, on leaving the next day, does turn round to smile at Daz.
This short film tells the story of a gay couple in Iran, from how they meet, how they love, how they get captured, imprisoned and executed for being homosexual.
"Aban and Khorshid" is so profoundly touching, that it got me physically sick with nausea within just a few minutes. Then the tears and the chest tightness follows. It is short, but very focused and effective. It affects people, and that effect lingers on for a long time.
Do spend fifteen minutes to watch "Aban and Khorshid", and be touched. Be reminded how great it is to be able to be yourself. It is freely available on the internet.
