Amira, a 17-year-old Palestinian, was conceived with the smuggled sperm of her imprisoned father, Nawar. Although their relationship since birth has been restricted to prison visits, he remains her hero. His absence in her life is overcompensated with love and affection from those surrounding her. But when a failed attempt to conceive another child reveals Nawar’s infertility, Amira’s world turns upside down.
Writer-director Mohamed Diab (who is currently working on a Marvel miniseries starring Oscar Isaac) has crafted a family drama more gripping than any political thriller.
