Synopsis by Augustine Chay

Director Zeresenay Mehari’s transnational drama is an adaptation of English-born Canadian writer Camilla Gibb’s 2005 novel of the same name. Starring Dakota Fanning, Kunal Nayyar, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Wunmi Mosaku, it traces the story of Lilly Abdal, an Anglo-Irish woman who grew up in Morocco as an orphan and embraced Islam. She is forced to flee to England after a civil war breaks out in Ethiopia in the 1970s.
