She will play the lead role in upcoming drama-thriller Love And War about a woman who is forced to travel to Syria to find her abducted daughter.

The film is based on the real-life events of an Irish woman, Louise Monaghan. Nicola will play a fictionalised version of Louise called Sarah O’Meara who in September 2011 rescued her six-year-old daughter who was abducted by her father and smuggled to his native Syria.

Sarah will be forced to not only survive a war but also outsmart her ex-husband and former abuser.

The film is based on the book Stolen: Escape From Syria by Louise Monaghan with Yvonne Kinsella.
