Thomas Bidegain, writer of Jacques Audiard’s films Dheepan, Rust and Bone and A Prophet, makes his feature directorial debut with this poignant family drama – a modern variant of John Ford‘s classic The Searchers.

Alain and his family, attend a cowboy fair in rural France. When his 16-year old daughter disappears amongst the festivities, he questions whether she was kidnapped or left on purpose. What follows is an extensive search across France to Pakistan, asking Alain to question his own prejudices about Islam and its transformations of the contemporary world.
