Polaris is an insightful and suspenseful drama created by American and Persian filmmakers in which a psychologically traumatized war photographer is locked in a desperate struggle to protect her secrets from her husband and escape her inevitable return to the Middle East.

The film stars acclaimed actor Bahram Radan as 'Poorya' Alicja Bachleda (Ondine, Trade) as 'Baran' and Coby Ryan Mclaughlin (Parenthood, Graceland) as 'Daniel'.

The cast also includes Elisabeth Rohm (Joy, American Hustle, Law & Order, Heroes) as Daniel's wife, 'Christine' and Roya Taymourian (Women's Prison, The Music Man) as Baran's mother. Alicja Bachleda skillfully and authentically portrays the silent struggle of Baran, a half-Persian journalist who leaves behind the war-torn countries of the Middle East, only to live in theongoing aftermath of the trauma. Baran is a shattered, yetfiercely independent woman engaged in a constant strugglefor independence and equality.
