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