Love Child (2019)

Documentary, F-Rated 1h 52m 2019

Sahand has been in a relationship with Leila for many years, though both are married to other people. Four-year-old Mani is the offspring of their secret love affair. Without the option of divorce, and facing the threat of the death penalty for committing adultery, the couple have no choice but to flee Tehran as outlaws. They arrive to Istanbul in 2012 just as the Syrian Civil War is creating a mass wave of refugees into Turkey, and begin an extended period of bureaucratic limbo where their case is continually pushed further down the list. The family’s escape becomes part of a protracted struggle to stay together, and to secure a future for their child.
