Hanaan is the story of Stas, a fourth-generation Korean-Uzbek police detective seeking to avenge the drug-fueled death of a friend. Infiltrating the Uzbeki underworld, Stas makes discoveries that plunge him into fury, moral chaos and a resurgent heroin dependency he once had kicked. He retreats to the snow-covered mountains of Uzbekistan, where he must fight his addiction in solitude as he faces an uncertain future. Inspired by his own life, first-time actor and childhood friend of the director Stanislav Tyan marvelously captures Stas' intense inner struggle. Set in the magnificent scenery of Uzbekistan, Ruslan Pak's gritty crime drama explores one man's desire to escape his past, his people's diaspora, and his all-encompassing search for a motherland, a promised land of milk and honey.
