"Heiran" was my first Iranian film at the TIFF, which made me really proud. A pure yet sad story about a simple love. The director of "Heiran", Shalizeh Arefpour, who was also present, showcased a love story between an Iranian teenage girl and an Afghan boy and the consequences thereafter. Another great performance by Baran Kosari, my favorite Iranian actress in her generation and of course the one and only Mr. Khosrow Shakibai (R.I.P.) who was performing his last role and an absolutely brilliant one.
