Film Movement (, the distributor of award-winning independent and foreign films, announces today that I AM YOURS, a debut feature from Iram Haq and an Official Selection at the Toronto International Film Festival, will be available to own on DVD and at all digital providers on November 11, 2014.

The film marries two cultures as it follows young single mother Mina, juggling 6-year-old Felix's upbringing in Oslo and her troublesome relationship with her traditional Pakistani family who don’t approve of her life choices. Constantly looking for love in all the wrong places, Mina falls in and out of relationships with a string of men, none of them lasting very long. But when Mina meets Jesper, a Swedish film director who dearly adores her, she falls head over heels in love, willing to go to any lengths to make it work this time around.

Noted by Variety as “a talent to watch!” filmmaker Iram Haq effortlessly chronicles both the day to day of Mina’s life and her inner monolog as well, bringing to the audience a unique insight into falling, and staying, in love.
