On Going Home
1979. At 16-years-old, Hassan Beickhorasani flees the oncoming revolution in Iran and ends up in Belfast. He builds a life, and a family, in Ireland, returning only sparingly to his home country. Half a lifetime later, his son Fabian, 25 years old himself, goes for the first time to a country, and a family, that has existed only in childhood stories. As he travels through the country, from the capital Tehran to his family in Mashhad, his sense of home, and indeed of his own identity, becomes a stranger and more beautiful thing than he imagined.
