Empty Sidewalk


“Empty Sidewalks” is a gripping love story set amidst the backdrop of war. Barbod, the son of a fallen soldier, secures a scholarship in International Law and leaves his homeland to study abroad. He crosses paths with Sara, a talented photography student from Iraq, whose family fled to Turkey to escape the ravages of war. As their love blossoms, a shocking revelation threatens to tear them apart: Sara’s father was responsible for Barbod’s father’s death during the Iran-Iraq conflict. Barbod now faces a heart-wrenching choice between seeking revenge or preserving his love for Sara.
