Cast & Crew
as Lucy's mother
"Mission" is an intriguing story focusing on the mysterious contemporary enterprise of James, an elderly European racketeer infamous for decades of illegal enterprise, including such activities as gun-running and smuggling, throughout Africa with principal focus on Ethiopia. The story unfolds as the memoirs of an Ethiopian orphan who was adopted, at an early age, by a foreign school teacher in her village; now, an adult ex-soldier, Lucy seeks revenge for the brutal murder of her adoptive mother. Other important character-driven relationships are introduced as the plot unfolds: e.g., the generational schism between James, his son and his grandson; and Taffere, a renowned Ethiopian Chief of Police and his wife, Enatnesh, who initiates her own investigation into the events implicated in the death of her son.
