Juno Temple plays American debutante Lucy Savage faced with a culture shock. David Costabile will play Lucy’s larger than life father, Grant Savage, an arms manufacturer who wants to control his daughter, wiith Amy Landecker as his loquacious wife Vanessa. Having set Lucy up with an English Lord, Hugo Cavendish Smythe (played by Harlots, Poldark and Star Wars star Hugh Skinner) Grant thinks he has a malleable, potentially useful son-in-law but
to the Savages, Hugo has already lost his heart to someone else. Matt
Lauria will be Bill, a bartender and bohemian artist who works in
neighbourhood nightclub El Sirocco and soon becomes a confidante of both
Lucy and Hugo. Although he is not what he seems and his flirtation and
the hand of friendship offered to Lucy and Hugo is very much a cover for
some more nefarious motivations.
As Lucy fights to carve out her independence and identity, her life
becomes intertwined with Cherifa Lamour (Yumna Marwan), a Moroccan
dominatrix who services the diplomats and foreigners of this colourful,
bohemian world and Egyptian Aristocrat Adham Abaza (Raphael Acloque),
and they all become entangled with some very dangerous characters. Nina
Sosanya, Rossy De Palma, Jean Marc-Barr and Raphael Acloque also star.
