Little Birds (2020)
Tuesday 1st September 2020
Inspired by short stories created by Anaïs Nin, gripping new drama Little Birds is out on DVD on 14th September 2020 from ITV Studios Home Entertainment. Starring Juno Temple (Ted Lasso, Dirty John), Hugh Skinner (Fleabag, Harlots), and newcomer Yumna Marwan, Little Birds tells the tale of two very different women whose lives - and those of their lovers - become dangerously entangled in Tangier's 'International Zone'.
It's 1955, and American heiress Lucy Savage (Juno Temple) is newly arrived in Tangier, one of the last outposts of colonial decadence. Whilst Lucy is navigating the sexual and political tensions of her new surroundings, her fiancé, Hugo Cavendish-Smyth (Hugh Skinner) is torn between his duty to Lucy and his lover Adham Abaza (Raphael Acloque), the most eligible man in Tangier.
Meanwhile, Cherifa Lamour (Yumna Marwan), a Moroccan dominatrix and local celebrity, enraptures Secretary Pierre Vaney (Jean-Marc Barr), who has fallen desperately in love with her. As Lucy and Cherifa struggle to find independence amid a country breaking free of its past, a passionate, sexy and witty melodrama unfolds.
Set against a vivid backdrop of hedonism and conflict, Little Birds weaves together stories of private desire and public politics to deliver a distinctly modern tale of freedom and feminism.
