This true life story begins in social-realist style, as the story of two sisters from a dysfunctional North African family living in the Paris banlieues, who become separated when they are taken into care. Hasna, who has been a surrogate mother to her younger siblings, then struggles to find an identity and sense of purpose before, as an adult (now played by Mouna Soualem), she starts associating with an extremist group and is wrongly characterised by the media as a terrorist. Asking challenging questions about modern society and its assumptions, this gripping first feature is based on the real experience of Hasna Aït Boulahcen, whom the director and co-writer (with Omar Mullick) first encounteredas a reporter for the online video channel Vice News.
