De Elika Hedayat film 2010
Olka leaves Iran six months after the disappearance of her boyfriend in demonstrations. He disappeared in the crowd and no one knows if he is dead or in prison. With no sign from him, Olka leaves the country at the request of her parents. Reza, a political refugee for the past twenty-four years, has never gone back to Iran. He will come and collect Olka at the airport. The film presents the story of the meeting of two generations, of the girl shattered by the disappearance of a loved-one in Tehran and of Reza who lost his home land twenty-four years ago. In parallel to the scene with Olka and Reza in the car, a second story unravels. The film tells the tale of Negar, a young Iranian trans-sexual in a hospital room. The latter wakes up and tells us his story, of a young trans-sexual prostitute who regrets his operation and ends up committing suicide. E.H.
