Sanam Film Poster


Iranian drama following the aftermath of a man's murder on suspicion of stealing a horse and how his wife and child deal with the tragedy. Issa (Ismail Amani) witnesses the murder of his father first hand. As if this wasn't bad enough, he finds himself ostracised by the other children of the village for his association with a thief. However, Ismail and his mother, Sanam (Roya Nonahali), are convinced that the man they knew and loved would never stoop to stealing. While Sanam sets out to try and prove her husband's innocence through the archaic and unresponsive Iranian legal and political systems, her son reacts in a different manner. Issa, initially fuelled by thoughts of revenge, sets out in search of the horse his father is said to have stolen and stumbles upon what appears to be his true calling along the way...
