Docu­men­tary about two Iranian brothers who get the chance to make their dream come true when they can exhibit their contro­ver­sial street art in New York. The down­side: They can never go back to Iran.
The Iranian brothers Icy and Sot create contro­ver­sial, socially crit­ical graf­fiti in Tabriz. When they receive an invi­ta­tion to exhibit in New York, freedom and recog­ni­tion beckon. The exhi­bi­tion is a success, the brothers made their dream come true. But the docu­men­tary also shows the down­side: If they want to stay, the two brothers will have to request polit­ical asylum and they will not be allowed to return to their native country. Is their success in New York worth it? And does their work still have the meaning it had in Iran?
