Two rambunctious, loving, immigrant sisters are torn apart by French authorities, their separate paths not reconnecting until a dramatic, infamous ending.


Cultural and intergenerational trauma erupt in this story about two sisters on the outskirts of Paris. After the siblings are torn apart, the elder, Hasna, struggles to find her identity, leading to a choice that shocks the world. Director Dina Amer takes on one of the darkest issues of our time and deconstructs it in an intimate story about family, love, sisterhood, and belonging.
