- Mohamed Kordofani
Haunted by guilt over her role in the death of a Southern man and his young son, a former singer from the North of Sudan seeks redemption by hiring the dead man’s widow as her maid — all while concealing her true identity. Their intricate connection develops amidst the turmoil of Sudan’s final days as a unified country, against a backdrop of violence and systemic racism. In this gripping feature debut — Sudan’s first feature film to be officially showcased at the Cannes Film Festival — director Mohamed Kordofani offers viewers a haunting and deeply layered exploration of guilt, redemption, and the enduring power of human bonds.
