In the film Headey plays Wendy, a British immigration officer deciding the fate of an asylum seeker.
"What I hope, personally, is we change 10 minds, or people reconsider how they feel about someone who has lost everything. Or maybe it will grow a bit more compassion, understanding, curiosity or bravery," Headey told variety.com.
Headey describes the film as "a really smart take on what's happening."
She said the film deals with its subject matter without preaching or being overtly political. "I think it's a very quiet, strong bit of cinema and it's really honest about what's happening and how we are all responsible for it," added the actress, who is an ambassador for the International Rescue Committee.
