"The heart of it is the story of a child but it is also the story of a country," Jolie, who directed the project, says about the film. "It's the first time on this size there's something about this war and country."

The global focus is no surprise coming from Jolie, who has adopted several children who were not born in the United States, and who recently added her voice to those concerned over President Donald Trump's recent travel ban.
