Joanna Scanlan is extraordinary as a recent widow uncovering a secret in Aleem Khan’s stunning debut feature that received its world premiere at the BFI London Film Festival. Muslim convert Mary Hussain is a widow who uncovers a shattering secret in the days following her husband’s unexpected death. As her world crumbles around her, Mary leaves their Dover home for Calais to piece together the fragments of a distressing truth – she was not the only woman in Ahmed’s life. But Mary is not emotionally prepared for what she discovers next, and her desire for confrontation soon gets lost in the shifting sands of shared grief. Aleem Khan’s sensitive, insightful direction is carried by a career-best performance from Scanlan. Together they channel the quiet tremors of loss into a devastating emotional earthquake.

Will Massa, Curator of Contemporary Fiction
