An illicit love affair leads an Iranian couple to seek asylum.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
Eva Mulvad’s film opens with a desperate man in Tehran telling the camera, “I’m not sure if, tomorrow, I’ll be dead or alive.” This is Sahand, who has been in a long-term adulterous relationship with Leila, despite Iran’s threat of the death penalty for infidelity. Now, the couple is fleeing the country with Mani, their four-year-old love child. Mulvad follows their journey for seven years as their love holds them together throughout an epic drama.
