How true love always finds its way

The Danish director Eva Mulvad follows the lovers over six years as they start a new life and laboriously progress through the asylum procedure. We see their fear and uncertainty, although their trust in each other always comes first.

The radical political changes taking place in Iran mean that Leila and Sahand are by no means the only ones who feel forced to flee the country. Mulvad films their hardest and happiest moments, without anyone seeming to mind the presence of the camera. Together with footage shot by Sahand himself, Love Child brings life as a refugee movingly close.
