House of Sand and Fog

Massoud Amir Behrani (Kingsley) is living a lie to fulfill a dream. Once a member of the Shah of Iran’s elite inner circle, he has brought his family to America to build a new life. Despite a pretense of continued affluence, he is barely making ends meet until he sees his opportunity in the auction of a house being sold for back taxes. It is a terrible mistake. Through a bureaucratic snafu, the house had been improperly seized from its rightful owner, Kathy Lazaro (Connelly). The loss of her home tears away Kathy’s last hope of a stable life - a life that had been nearly destroyed by addiction - and Kathy decides to fight to recover her home…at any cost.
