Love Child (12)

Cinema On Demand

parents with their child between them holding both their hands

This intimately filmed documentary and epic love story introduces Leila and Sahand at the start of a turbulent five-years.

The turbulence begins with their escape from Iran where, while married to other people, they fell in love. Since adultery is punishable by death, and divorce forbidden, they run for their lives and start over again as a family in Turkey with their young son, Mani, who doesn’t yet know that Sahand is his biological father.

Suddenly living together in a strange new land battling tightening asylum laws to find security after years in limbo, they are learning more about each other in the toughest of circumstances and facing hurdles that test the strength of their relationship.
