Hana is seeking mental peace and physical respite after an overwhelming period spent working at a clinic in Ramtha, on the Jordanian-Syrian border, where she specialised in treating victims wounded in the war in Syria. She finds solace in majestic Luxor, Egypt, where she lived in her 20s and dated a handsome archaeologist, Sultan, who was also studying there.
On this nostalgic solo trip, she lingers through memory-filled hotel lobbies and ancient sites as she begins to grapple with her grief and her emotions from the war but when she runs into Sultan on a ferry crossing unexpectedly, the chemistry is undeniable.
In this restrained story of romance post-trauma, Riseborough shines as the naturally playful and delicately subdued Hana.
