Siamak Etemadi was born in Tehran and moved to Athens in Protected content . He studied Cinema and worked extensively as assistant director in various films, TV series and documentaries. His short film Cavo d’Oro premiered at Locarno Film Festival in competition in Protected content . Pari is his first feature film.

When Iranian Pari and her older, strictly religious husband arrive in Athens to visit their grown-up son, he fails to pick up his parents from the airport as promised. He is not to be found at the address they have for him, either. The two set out in search of their son but soon find themselves in the midst of a city in political turmoil, where their paths are blocked by street fighting and burning barricades. Since her husband does not speak a word of English, this traditional Muslim wife now slips into a new role. As she pursues her never-ending, desperate search for her son with increasing independence, she forges unexpected alliances with strangers and musters the kind of strength she never knew she possessed.
