As the reign of imperialism gives way to Communist control in Aden, Yemen, a young Parsi family finds themselves trapped as political prisoners. Their strength, love, and faith are pushed to the limits overnight as they take on the fight of their lives.

November 1967. Dara and Silloo Baruchas' serene life is interrupted when the British occupation announces its swift exit from the country. Things take a violent turn when they are targeted by members of the revolution: the family business is seized, Dara is whisked away as a political prisoner, and Silloo is put under house arrest with her three young children and mother-in-law. As the couple embarks on their separate harrowing journeys, in the hopes of being reunited, they are bombarded by challenges. The looming question: Will they make it out alive?

Based on a true story, Of Mud and Honey captures the ugliness of a country torn apart by the fight for independence while exemplifying the beauty of good deeds and the bounty that hope can bestow.
