An Iranian family in Finland await the final decision on their asylum application. Even as deportation looms, the Mehdipour parents move through the days and nights in their refugee accommodations in a quiet, simple manner, full of humor and warmth. 


Amidst the uneasy situation, the stuff of everyday life - days at the lake, neighborhood gossip, quiet apartment dance parties - goes on. Yet, as their son Ramin, enters junior high, he realizes the uncertainty of their place in new ways. 

Inspired partly by the experiences of director Hamy Ramezan, who fled Iran for Finland with his family in the 1990s,Any Day Now is an irresistible invitation to the Mehdipour family's table. It also distinguishes itself as a keen, personal portrayal of living under the caprices of the immigration system.
