A House for You

خانه ای برای تو

DIRECTED BY: Mehdi Bakhshi Moghaddam

Eighteen months after getting married, a 30-year-old man working in Tehran is diagnosed with lymphoma and has no option but to return to his rural hometown with his wife. Acting out of love, the man pools together his savings to buy a plot of land where he hopes to build a house for his wife. Caught between the reality of his illness and desire to continue living his life, the man dedicates every day to ensuring a secure future for his loved ones. 

A true story, this compassionate and relatable film contemplates the healing power of faith, family and medical opinion through the taxing struggle with terminal illness.
