Synopsis

When you change where you are do you change who you are? Set in modern day Tehran, and the UK, I Am Nasrine follows the paths of Nasrine and Ali, sister and brother in a comfortable, middle class Iranian home. When Nasrine has a run-in with the police, the punishment is more than she bargained for. Nasrine and Ali set out for the UK, torn about leaving behind their home and all that they know, embarking on a reluctant exile. Still, for Nasrine, there is undeniable excitement about the prospect of starting a new life in the West.

Nasrine is quick to settle into her new life, making friends, forming bonds, including Nichole from the gypsy/travelers community. All the while her brother Ali struggles with the realities of life in the UK and his awakening sexuality. Then comes 9/11. Things spiral further out of control when an unimaginable tragedy occurs. Nasrine must discover 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. http://www.iamnasrine.com
