Synopsis


Set in London in 2011, Gholam is the story of an enigmatic Iranian cab driver, who works at night and doesn’t like to talk about his past.


He has two jobs, yet seems not to be interested in the money. He eats at his uncle’s café every day, yet is fully aware of being betrayed by him. He agrees to the arrangement his mother makes for his return home, yet has no intention of going back. We learn that he was once a war hero, and yet disappeared from the battlefield without a trace.


A man with no past, no future, no convictions, he still gets involved in the conflict of a total stranger and carries it through to the very end.
