Inside a police station, a woman in a burqa pleads to the officers to protect her from her abusive husband, yet her translator seems to be altering her story. Co-directors Rungano Nyoni and Hamy Ramezan’s film is an exploration of the power of language and the fragility of a globalism where currency is easier to exchange than words. The different wills and wishes that could be operating in these kinds of situations are clearly indicated, enhancing the complexities of the racist structures of European society.
