DIRECTED BY: Mohamed Diab
Conceived with the smuggled sperm of her father Nawar who is in prison, Palestinian teenager Amira enjoys the status of a hero’s daughter. Although their time together consists of brief prison visits, Amira is very attached to her father. But her parents’ attempt to conceive another child fails, revealing that Nawar is sterile. Egyptian activist and director Mohamed Diab (Clash – ZFF 2016, Golden Pram) returns with a layered drama about the divisions, xenophobia and nature of hatred in today’s world, told through the eyes of a teenager faced with the mystery of her true identity.
