Ramin is a young gay Iranian man living and working illegally in the tropica port city of Veracruz, Mexico. He longs to travel to Turkey to be closer to his native land and his secret boyfriend, but circumstances make it all but impossible. His nostalgia and melancholy are confronted with new relationships in Veracuz, and he slowly begins to recover his own desire for love and friendship. Fireflies is a powerful film about the harrowing consequences of exile and being perpetually cast in the role of otherness. Ramin’s dilemmas force him to own his situation and ultimately a way to forge his true path, for perhaps the first time in his young life.
It's coming to DVD at TLAGAY on the 24th June 2019.
