TV Serial (24 episodes) with subtitles in English.

A most inspiring Iranian TV serial with strong multidimensional thriller elements and accurate descriptions of the transitions zones between life and death, and the world of dreams. The protagonist finds himself in a parallel realm of souls suspended between life and death, while a suspenseful roller-coaster of events develop aimed at bringing him back into ordinary life, promoting forgiveness and reconciliation.
For Muslims death is merely a bardo journey through another dimension of existence, a shift into a wormhole interspace leading into other worlds. Ordinary life is a provisional experience in preparation for the next realm of existence, and the final return to God.
“Every soul shall have a taste of death: In the end to Us shall you be brought back.” (Quran 29:57)
