This 18 episode Iranian television drama, Men of Angelos (Persian: مردان آنجلس Mardān-e Ānjelos), tells the story of the Seven Sleepers (mentioned in Surah al-Kahf), according to the Quran. It tells the story of six noblemen and a shepherd who became Christian and ran away from the tyranny of the Roman Empire to a cave where they slept 309 years.
The series was directed by the late Iranian filmmaker Farajollah Salahshour who also produced the series on the life of the Prophet Joseph also available on Alchemiya.
In Christian and Islamic traditions, the Seven Sleepers (Arabic: اصحاب الکهف, romanized: aṣḥāb al kahf, lit. 'Companions of the Cave') is the story of a group of youths who hid inside a cave outside the city of Ephesus around 250 CE to escape a religious persecution and emerged some 300 years later. The story is referred to in the Quran at Surah 18 (verses 9-26).
