BOMB, A LOVE STORY / Bomb, Yek Asheghaneh

At the peak of Iran-Iraq war, sirens go off in Tehran relentlessly and people hide in bunkers in fear. But the sirens sound very different to one couple dealing with their fractured past; a past that separates them more with every siren they hear.

A heartfelt and powerful look at the darkest years of Iranian contemporary history, Bomb, a Love Story is a journey into the hearts of the men and women whose lives changed forever with war.
