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.
