Your First Look at Fremont

Fremont centers on beautiful and troubled 20-something Donya, an Afghan translator who used to work with the U.S. government, has trouble sleeping. She lives by herself in Fremont, California, in a building with other Afghan immigrants and often dines alone at a local restaurant watching soap operas. Her routine changes when she’s promoted to writing the fortunes at her job at a fortune cookie factory in the city. As her fortunes are read by strangers throughout the Bay, Donya’s smoldering longing drives her to send a message out to the world, unsure where it will lead.

Fremont is directed by Babak Jalali. The cast is led by Anaita Wali Zada (The Face Behind the Mask, Picture Bride, House of Sand and Fog), the aforementioned Jeremy Allen White of The Bear, and Gregg Turkington (Cursed Films, Deck of Cards, Mister America).
