Jeden deň v živote malej rozhlasovej stanice Pars Radio, ktorá vysiela v perzštine zo San Francisca. Nie je to však len taký obyčajný deň, pretože dnes večer má v Pars Radiu zahrať naživo Metallica s kapelou Kabul Dreams, prvou rockovou skupinou z Afganistanu. Ale do večera je ešte ďaleko a Hamid, spisovateľ v exile a programový riaditeľ rádia, má pred sebou dlhý deň... Poetická komédia v štýle Jima Jarmuscha a Akiho Kaurismäkiho je druhým celovečerným filmom scenáristu a režiséra Babaka Jalaliho, ktorý hovorí: „Radio Dreams je film o človeku, ktorý odišiel do exilu a snaží sa preniesť svoju kultúru do San Francisca prostredníctvom hudby a umenia, no naráža pri tom na realitu komerčnej stanice.“ Za svoj film získal Zlatého tigra, najvyššie ocenenie Medzinárodného filmového festivalu Rotterdam, ktorý sa zameriava na začínajúcich filmárov.

A day in the life of a small Farsi-language radio station, Pars Radio, broadcasting from San Francisco. Still, it’s a day like no other, as the band Kabul Dreams, the first rock band from Afghanistan, are supposed to play a concert with Metallica live on Pars Radio on that very night. However, the day is young and Hamid, an exiled writer and the program director of the radio, still has a long day ahead of him... This poetic comedy in the style of Jim Jarmusch and Aiko Kaurismäki is the second feature film by the screenwriter and the director Babak Jalali, who said the following about the film: “Radio dreams is a movie about an exile, who is trying to bring his culture to San Francisco through music and art, and who runs into the harsh reality of commercial stations.” For this movie, Babak Jalali won the Tiger Award, the highest award from the International Film Festival in Rotterdam, a festival for up-and-coming filmmakers.
