Somewhere in South-East Asia, in a little lost village at a wide and turbulent river, a European man clings to his pipe dreams out of love for his daughter. This is the tale of an occidental merchant, Kaspar Almayer, who leads an unhappy marriage with local Malay woman Zahira and grows an unhealthy attachment to his daughter Nina. The girl is sent away by her father, to get an European-style education. Stranded between the two cultures, Nina feels robbed of her identity. When she runs away, Almayer collapses under the weight of his own greed and prejudice. "A delightfully unusual adaptation" of Joseph Conrad's debut novel. (
