Between Grindr plans, raves and pop culture, Parvis, the son of exiled Iranians, is enjoying life to the full in his small town in Lower Saxony. After being caught shoplifting, he is sentenced to community service at a refugee center where he falls in love with Amun, who fled Iran with his sister. The trio will live an unforgettable summer ...

Winning the prestigious Teddy Award at the 2020 Berlin Film Festival, this powerful and energetic film is the exalted story of a first love. Young director Faraz Shariat also offers a subtle insight into the heartbreaks of the Iranian community in Germany, with a reflection on the possibilities of integration and the feeling of dual cultural belonging. In addition to the superb trio of actors, the finesse of the writing and sensual sex scenes without taboos, we salute the lyricism of the staging: flamboyant queer aesthetic, inspired music and skin-deep sensitivity evoking Xavier Dolan's cinema.
