Synopsis

Award-winning German drama directed by Angelina Maccarone. Persecuted in Iran for her love of another woman, Fariba (Jasmin Tabatabai) flees to Germany where she is held in a camp for those seeking political asylum. When her application for residence is denied, her desperate prospects take an unlikely twist following the suicide of fellow asylum seeker Siamak (Navíd Akhavan); she assumes his identity and uses his temporary permit to enter the country - and take his place in a men's hostel. In order to pay for forged documents, Fariba takes an illegal job and meets the vibrant Anne (Anneke Kim Sarnau). The two fall in love - but Anne is becoming increasingly suspicious about the real identity of 'Siamak'... The film won awards for Best Narrative Feature at the Seattle Lesbian and Gay Film Festival and the Grand Prize at the 'Image+Nation' festival in Montreal.
