    • Synopsis
    • A young orphan, Aïcha, is found alone in the forests of central Morocco. She has a personal
      history that reveals a courageous attempt at self-determination. Taken and sold from her home in
      the hills of the Atlas mountains, Aïcha finds herself at the mercy of a petty criminal, Abbas, and his
      conflicted girlfriend, Nadia. They soon cross paths with Zacaria, a Moroccan/Iraqi writer, who has
      left everything behind - including a passionate relationship with a teacher, Judith - to search for his
      missing brother. The group embarks on a journey that will lead them across Morocco, to Istanbul,
      the plains of Kurdistan and beyond.
