Plot Summary:

Lupita Nyong’o, will star in the adaptation of The Daily Show host Trevor Noah’s memoir "Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood." Nyong’o will portray Noah’s mother, the central figure in the book that has been described as not just the comedian’s account of growing up under apartheid rule in South Africa but also a love letter to his mother. Noah was conceived from a white father and a black mother under a regime in which mixed relations were punishable by months-long prison incarcerations. Key in the book is Noah’s time with his mother, who at first concealed her son to keep him safe from the threat of being taken by government forces to later giving everything to him in order to break a cycle of poverty and violence.
