POURIA HEIDARY OUREH  | ARMENIA | 2016 | 78 min.

In light of cultural and familial obligations, to what lengths will someone go for the person they love?

Aram, an Iranian-Armenian trans man living in the U.S. since childhood, returns to Armenia to meet his girlfriendís conservative family. Over the course of the day-long journey, Aramís brother helps him prepare for the meeting, while also coming to terms with Aramís transition.

Written and directed by Pouria Heidary Oureh, this quiet and introspective film beautifully illustrates the bittersweetness of reconnecting with a culture that may not be accepting of who you have become.
