Stand-up comic sensation Kheiron directs and plays his own father, Hibat, a lawyer and eventual political prisoner under the Shah who was released by the Ayatollah. The intolerant climate forces him to flee through Turkey with his wife Fereshteh and baby son. Ultimately the couple’s spirit of rebellion and joie de vivre continues as they make their mark in the migrant suburb of Pierrefitte-sur-Seine near Paris
Featuring wonderfully funny scenes of family life from Hibat’s own youth, audiences will be irresistibly drawn into this incredible story of tenacity and love. This clever, heartfelt drama-comedy is about the ideal of living together in harmony.
