WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Nominated for a GLAAD Award, Haram! Iran! is based on the true story of the trial of two Iranian teenagers in Mashad, Iran, in 2005. Coming of age at 15 years old, Mahmoud Asgari and Ayaz Marhouni struggle with their identities — not only as minority Arab Iranians but as teenagers longing to discover their place in the world. When an innocent moment between two friends is misconstrued, the hardline Iranian justice system takes over.
