When Afghan refugee Nazrullah shows up unexpectedly on the doorstep of Dr. Harold Banks claiming to have known his adopted daughter Getee, the two men become unlikely roommates. Through flashbacks, Getee and Nazrullah’s relationship unfolds, and a clearer picture of Harold’s estrangement from his daughter is revealed. A poignant new work inspired by true events, Heartland is a stirring emotional journey about love, loss, and understanding.
