Based on the Laurence Olivier Award winning stage play Blackbird, by David Harrower, UNA tells the tale of a young woman’s journey to reclaim her past; by tracking down the man who was imprisoned for absconding with her when she was just a child, 15 years ago; as seen in the UNA official trailer below.

Coming from frost-time director Benedict Andrews, UNA features an impressive cast; with Rooney Mara (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo remake) headlining as the young woman who tracks down the man she ran away with 15 years earlier, and Ben Mendelsohn (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) as the same man who was subsequently arrested and imprisoned for running away with a child, and now faces having his new life destroyed by her abrupt arrival.

Riz Ahmed (Nightcrawler) also co-stars in the film which sees the pair raising unanswered questions and revisiting unresolved longings, and is due to be released in UK cinemas on September 1st.
