Fatima-Zahra and her devoted but defiant son Selim are living on the poverty line, hustling for survival. Their close – albeit warped – bond is tested when Selim discovers a painful truth about his past, setting the duo on a path they can’t turn back from. An acutely observed domestic tale of love, identity and belonging, this exceptional film interrogates the strictures of Moroccan society on the disenfranchised.
