Project Description

Tomorrow we’re free

Director: Hossein Pourseifi – Historical Drama, 97 min, Color, Germany 2019

In February 1979, the “Islamic Revolution” sweeps over Iran. Young chemist Beate (37) follows her husband Omid (44), an Iranian dissident living in the GDR, full of love and hope in his homeland. However, after the initial spirit of optimism, the situation deteriorates for Beate and her daughter Sarah (8). As the new revolutionary government turns more and more into a merciless regime, Beate’s family has to make a fateful decision.

“The revolution eats its children,” it says in reference to the French Revolution. TOMORROW WE’RE FREE is the dramatic story of a woman who experiences the historical truthfulness of this quote in the most painful way.

The drama is aimed primarily at a culturally and politically interested arthouse audience.
