Directed by: Farida Ben Lyziad

(107 mins) This Sufi mystical tale from Moroccan director Farida Ben Lyziad explores issues of spirituality, gender and friendship in the context of a moving family tragedy.

Together, the two build a beautiful friendship and, moved by the power of their relationship, turn Nadia's father's palace into a shelter for Muslim women.
