“This admirably mordant film deserves to travel widely.” –Variety

In this caustic look at contemporary Moroccan society—where it remains a crime for women to give birth out of wedlock—20-year-old single mother Sofia is pressed to name the father of her child. The young woman’s relatives must then try to make a deal with his working-class clan to contain the fallout from the new arrival. A wallop of a twist helped Sofia win best screenplay honors at Cannes.
