Synopsis

Casablanca is the backdrop for this richly nuanced drama celebrating sisterhood among women. Pregnant and homeless runaway Samia arrives on the doorstep of Abla, a tightly-wound widow raising a young daughter and running a small bakery. Against her better judgment, Abla offers Samia refuge. As the women work side-byside, they forge a powerful connection and slowly begin to find ways to both confront the present and come to terms with the past.

“This scrupulously even two-hander about grief, shame, and the redemption of motherhood doles out emotional comfort food that’s neither too sweet nor too heavy.”
-Variety
