MOROCCO OFFICIAL INTERNATIONAL FEATURE FILM OSCAR® SUBMISSION
Samia, heavily pregnant and alone, walks the streets of Casablanca knocking on doors, seeking shelter and work. With an illegitimate child on the way, Moroccan society has shunned her until Abla, a modest baker and single mother of an eight-year-old girl, reluctantly takes her in. Abla’s daughter enjoys Samia’s company in their home despite her mother’s hostility. Over time, the women transcend their mutual stubbornness by revealing their inner struggles to one another and transform their lives by extending compassion and understanding.
