In a luxurious seaside villa, a modest young woman finds herself in the company of a strange family : an unknown and wealthy father,

Mina (Lubna Azabal – Incendies, Paradise Now) and her husband Halim (Saleh Bakri – Costa Brava, Lebanon) run a small business making and selling bespoke caftans in one of Morocco’s oldest medinas. Halim is a master of his trade, and Mina a canny saleswoman, though their wares don’t come cheap and traditional dress is falling out of favour.

Woven with exquisite care, Maryam Touzani’s Cannes Un Certain Regard winning drama reveals a beautiful love triangle in a small Moroccan town (where gay relations are forbidden). Touzani explores a complex marriage with tenderness and grace in a sincere and superbly performed film that unfolds in unexpected and heartening ways.
