Ebrahim Hatamikia’s movie tells the story of a middle-aged bodyguard who protects high-ranking political figures.
He gets into trouble when a suicide bomber wearing an explosive vest approaches the vice president. He then has to evaluate the values that he sacrifices for.
The film was first screened at the Fajr Film Festival in Iran, where the film’s star, Parviz Parastouee, was honored with the Best Actor award.
‘Bodyguard’, made in 2015, is scheduled to go on air at 22:00 GMT. It is also set to be repeated the next day at 04:00, 10:00 and 16:00 (all GMT times).
