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 spiraling out of control. PERSIAN CONNECTION is an electric neon-noir fever dream set in the Persian opium underworld of Los Angeles.. Official Selection at Tribeca Film Festival and Twin Cities Film Festival.
