Details

In this knockout feature debut from BAFTA-nominated short filmmaker Aleem Khan, Joanna Scanlan is superb as a woman left reeling upon discovering her late husband’s secrets. 

Grappling with the unexpected death of her husband (Nasser Memarzia), Mary Hussain is tidying his things in their Dover home when she stumbles upon a secret connection he had across the Channel, in Calais. Armed with just a bag and his mobile phone, she sets off to uncover the truth. Beautifully directed by Aleem Khan, with sensitive performances from Scanlan, Nathalie Richard (Jeune et Jolie) and impressive youngster Talid Ariss, this is a drama of real insight about two women, living just 20 miles apart, who are separated by cultural difference and yet share a connection. A remarkable debut, whose delicate tenderness is a testament to the quality of its writing and performances - by its close you will feel you truly know these people.

Screening at GFT as part of BFI London Film Festival in partnership with American Express.
