A film by Faraz Shariat.

[Credits] [Termine] [Trailer]

High-cut trou­sers, skin-tight t‑shirt, short, per­oxi­de-blond hair. On his bir­th­day, Parvis cele­bra­tes by ste­al­ing a bot­t­le from the bar at the club and dancing. The son of Iranian par­ents, he has estab­lished hims­elf in the attic of his par­ents’ house in a quiet new housing estate in Lower Saxony and is busy try­ing out ever­y­thing and any­thing from sex dates to raves. After get­ting caught shop­lif­ting, he is sent to do com­mu­ni­ty ser­vice in a refu­gee shel­ter whe­re he falls in love with Amon, who has fled Iran with his sis­ter Banafshe Arezu. The trio enjoys a sum­mer of fier­ce par­ty­ing till dawn, colou­red by the rea­li­sa­ti­on that, in their dif­fe­rent ways, none of them is at home in Germany.
In his powerful, semi-bio­gra­phi­cal debut pep­pe­red with pop-cul­tu­ral refe­ren­ces, Faraz Shariat unfolds a tale of inten­se first love. With a pre­cise grasp of social con­text, he offers a sen­si­ti­ve insight into the expe­ri­ence of migrants in Germany caught bet­ween fee­ling for­eign, being excluded and obtai­ning the per­ma­nent right to stay, and shows how even sub­se­quent gene­ra­ti­ons are still in the pro­cess of arriving.
