Escaping a former troubled lifestyle doesn’t always guarantee a person’s future safety, as their past almost always has a way of catching up with them. That’s certainly the case for the protagonist in the new neo-noir crime drama, ‘The Persian Connection.’ In honor of the movie’s release in theaters today by Samuel Goldwyn Films, Shockya is premiering an exclusive clip, which is titled, ‘Have to Leave.’ The clip features lead actor Reza Sixo Safai in his role of Behrouz, who insistently tells his girlfriend, Oksana, that they must escape their apartment before his former boss tracks them down.

In addition to unveiling ‘The Persian Connection’ in theaters today, Samuel Goldwyn Films is also set to distribute the action drama on VOD on Tuesday, July 25. Besides playing the main character, Safai also co-wrote the script with director Daniel Y-Li Grove. In addition to Safai, the mystery movie also stars Helena Mattsson, Parviz Sayyad, Julian Sands, Laura Harring, Dominic Rains, Nikolai Kinski, Gregory Kasyan, David Diaan and Daniel Zolghadri.

Samuel Goldwyn Films has released the following synopsis for ‘The Persian Connection’:

As a child soldier, Behrouz (Reza Sixo Safai) miraculously survived the Iran-Iraq War to be squirreled away to the streets of Los Angeles. After two decades under the ruthless Iranian mobster Cirrus Golshiri (Parviz Sayyad), Behrouz leaves the underworld to follow his American Dream of becoming a “Real Estate Man.” But after a chance encounter involving a high-stakes poker game, he is brought back into the life he left behind and accused of stealing from his former boss. Behrouz and his Russian girlfriend Oksana (Helena Mattsson), must hunt down missing drugs as events from his past and present clash and spiral out of control. ‘The Persian Connection’ is an electric neo-noir fever dream set in the Persian opium underworld of Los Angeles.
