Round-trip by Iranian-British filmmaker, Golkou Parhizgar, is a documentary inspired by director's personal experience of returning to Iran after 11 years of living in the UK and rediscovering relationships of those left behind. It is a journey through the heart of Tehran, one caught between modernity and tradition, through the lives of its young generation, their struggles, hopes and aspirations and witnessing their identity crisis within their own divided society. Round-trip, above all, is a search for the director's place back "home" while the others are mostly seeking a way out in pursuit of liberty.
In Persian with English Subtitles
