Grief-hardened Abla runs a modest local bakery from her home in Casablanca where she lives alone with her eight-year-old daughter, Warda. When Samia, young, homeless, unmarried and pregnant, knocks on their door, Abla makes a life-changing decision. In this heartwarming feature directorial debut, the celebrated actor Maryam Touzani (Razzia, CFAF 2019) has created a moving portrait of familial love and support between women.
