A widow, mother and business owner opens her door to a young pregnant woman in this Cannes drama set in Casablanca.
"Keeping her condition hidden from her village family, Samia (Nisrin Erradi), unmarried and heavily pregnant, seeks work and refuge in Casablanca. Azabal (Lubna Azabal) seems like the last person who might take her in. Bringing up a daughter alone and running a one-woman bakery business from her kitchen, Azabal has more work than she can handle, and she intends to keep it that way. The evident happiness and security of Azabal’s daughter may be the only clue Samia needs that the older woman’s bark is more severe than her bite, but the mutual accommodation they reach develops incrementally, in sideways shifts."
