Playfully inspired by Anaïs Nin’s infamous collection of erotic short stories, Little Birds weaves tales of love and desire together with personal drama and political intrigue. This Sky original stars Juno Temple as troubled American debutante Lucy Savage alongside Yumna Marwan and Hugh Skinner.
In the opening episode, it is 1955 and Lucy, the daughter of an arms manufacturer, arrives in Tangier where her husband-to-be, Lord Hugo Canvenish- Smythe (Skinner) is waiting for her. However, after a disappointing reception, Lucy discovers Cherifa (Marwan), one of Tangier’s most scandalous characters, whocaptures her imagination and introduces her to the Interzone’s world of personal secrets, sexual possibilities and political strife.
Little Birds – Tuesday at 9.00pm on Sky Atlantic and Now TV.
