Synopsis

Ten-year-old orphan Majid sells books and shines shoes on the streets of Mohammedia while his older brother Driss dreams of Norway and Norwegian girls. Majid embarks on a journey to Casablanca to track down a photo - and memories - of his parents, a journey fraught with danger. This brilliantly observed and acted film marks the debut of a bevy of new talent, from the young Moroccan director Nassim Abassi to child star Brahim al Bakali.
