The film is a riveting exploration of the complexities of racial conflict and the limits of human will. The legendary Isabelle Huppert is Maria Vial, a fearless French woman attempting to run her family’s coffee plantation in an unnamed African country. Torn violently apart by hate-fueled civil conflict, this unforgiving setting soon turns against the foreign family, declaring them outlaws in their new home. In a brash effort to save her family and livelihood, Maria risks everything, fighting with every shred of her will to buck the rebel forces wrestling for control of local power.
