(Sudanna al Habib). The complex history of Sudan, from its establishment in 1956 to its partition in 2011, is detailed through interviews, rare archival footage, and the personal experiences of one mixed-race family. Amira Alteraify, born of a Northern father and a Southern mother, spent part of her childhood with her mother and part with her father’s family, where she was treated as a servant.
