    • Synopsis
    • Amine Bertale, alias 'Zero' is a conflicted cop who spends most of his time reporting citizen complaints and pacing the streets of Casablanca with Mimi, a 22 year-old prostitute.
      He lives in perpetual confrontation with his disabled dominant father and with this superior, a chief-commissioner who constantly humiliates him.
      Facing his oppressive and dissolute everyday life, Zero finally decides to turn the page of a past tainted by cowardice, fear and inferiority complex and go in searching of a missing 15-year-old girl in the huge metropolis.
      And so begins his crusade against a hard and ruthless world which is greatly perverted by money and power.
