A woman (Jasmin Tabatabai) forced to flee her native Iran after being exposed as a lesbian seeks political asylum in Germany; when her petition is denied, she disguises herself as a man to work illegally in a small-town factory. Andrea Maccarone's drama begins on an urgent note, then detours from the larger story about human rights tragedies to pursue a sluggish romance between the Iranian and an unsuspecting female coworker. Comparisons with Boys Don't Cry are inevitable, but this film is hardly in that league. In German and Farsi with subtitles. 97 min.
