An intimate journey of self-discovery and ultimately reveals the unfolding of a soul

SYNOPSIS: I am Nasrine is an intimate journey of self-discovery and ultimately reveals the unfolding of a soul. Set in modern day Tehran, and the UK, the film follows the paths of Nasrine and Ali, sister and brother in a comfortable, middle class Iranian home. Arriving in Britain, their fate and their future are far from certain.

Things spiral further out of control when an unimaginable tragedy occurs. Nasrine must discover an incredible courage within her to accept what fate has dealt her; discovering that the end of her journey is really just the beginning. Can hope, simple untainted hope, overcome the darkest of tragedies?

I Am Nasrine explores these questions and more, and offers answers that are sure to surprise. “A Life enhancing Film. An important and much needed film” Sir Ben Kingsley.
