Cultural and intergenerational trauma erupt in this story about two sisters on the outskirts of Paris. After the siblings are torn apart, the  eldest, 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. This confident debut feature uses shifting form to explore France’s relationship to Muslim women, media narratives around terrorism, and how individuals process trauma.
