    • Synopsis
    • Malik, Allal and Soufiane are three friends who live off pickpocketting in a town stuck between a hill and a large mountain, Tetouan. One day, they decide to change their destiny and rob the town’s largest jewellery store. But the reasons for the heist soon come to divide and pit them against each other! Malik, 26, unemployed, is madly in love with Dounia, a prostitute at "La Passarella" nightclub. He takes part in the heist so that he can get her out of there. Allal, 30, is a big and strong tough guy. He doesn’t understand why Malik is in love with Dounia. He takes part in the heist so that he can fry bigger fish in the drugs trade. Soufiane, 18, is avoiding going to school except for sports. He is agile and quick with an easy laugh, dependable and easy-going but, one day, his world is turned upside down. He takes part in the heist so that he can kill the Christian owner of the boutique. A town that is under a permanently low, heavy sky, three losers, a dream of grandeur, a jewellery store, and a woman who arrives in town…
