David (Ralph Fiennes) and Jo (Jessica Chastain) are a couple on the edge of divorce, taking a vacation to Morocco in a last-ditch effort to save their marriage. However, their already-tense time takes a turn for the worse when they accidentally hit and kill a young boy. As the two split off to reckon with their actions, they find themselves coming to terms with their respective vices – David with his uncaring and vicious bigotry, and Jo with her unbearable compliance and repression. In these introspections, those around them will be left picking up the pieces.
Based on the novel by Lawrence Osborne, John Michael McDonagh returns with another brutal examination of how power corrupts morality. Fiennes and recent Academy Award® recipient Chastain give powerhouse performances amidst an eerie Moroccan backdrop. This dark satire is a powerful one that will keep audiences on the edge of their seats.
