    Beautifully directed and emotionally gripping film. I read about the true story while researching LGBT history for a college awareness event my Junior year. It is appalling and sad that people like Aban & Khorshid are persecuted and killed all because of their love for one another. This is a film all the world should see and learn that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. I pray LGBT relationships and rights will one day soon be accepted in the Middle East and all the intolerance will fade away. Everyone deserves to be free to love who makes them happy and should not be discriminated for it. It has taken the world a long time to accept the LGBT community, yet there are still a handful of nations where many in Aban & Khorshid's shoes are forced to live in fear, hide their sexuality and unable to be together. I pray for those suffering under homophobia's harsh grip and that things get better, which I believe will happen.

    All it took was this film and the words below to change my views on gay people. "This film is dedicated to those who dare to risk their lives for love."
