"Deftly explores the emotional and spiritual costs of leaving your homeland behind."—Jourdain Searles, The Hollywood Reporter

"Nanny is a superb first showing from Jusu."—Andy Crump, Inverse

"Themes of motherhood, exploitation, and the falsehood of the American dream will undoubtedly spark conversation."—Aramide Tinubu, Essence

In this psychological horror fable of displacement, Aisha (Anna Diop), a woman who recently emigrated from Senegal, is hired to care for the daughter of an affluent couple (Michelle Monaghan and Morgan Spector) living in New York City. Haunted by the absence of the young son she left behind, Aisha hopes her new job will afford her the chance to bring him to the U.S., but becomes increasingly unsettled by the family's volatile home life. As his arrival approaches, a violent presence begins to invade both her dreams and her reality, threatening the American dream she is painstakingly piecing together.
