★★★★ “so mesmerising it will make you want to pack your suitcase” The Times

When British aid worker Hana (Andrea Riseborough) returns to the ancient city of Luxor, she comes across Sultan (Karim Saleh), an archeologist and former lover. As she wanders, haunted by the familiar place, she struggles to reconcile her past choices with the uncertainty of the present. Presented in the Official selection of the 2020 Sundance Film Festival, Zeina Durra’s second feature film – after The Imperialists Are Still Alive! – won the Prix spécial du jury at the La Roche-sur-Yon International Film Festival.
