Israfil  (Iran, 2017)

Director Ida Panahandeh (Nahid) brings a sensitive eye to the dynamics of a couple caught up in the throes of love and regret.  Still in mourning after the death of her son, the widowed Mahi (Hedieh Tehrani) learns that her first love—who left town when their relationship sparked a scandal—has returned.  Haunted by the past but longing for a new future, Mahi and Behrooz (Pejman Bazeghi) are drawn together again at the risk reopening old wounds.
