Abassi is the first director from Morocco to present the Tamazight in his films.
An amazing heartfelt film that focuses on the day-to-day realities of the poor and orphaned in Morocco rather than the beautiful scenery of the country.

“This film has courageous intentions and aims to depict reality rather than a tourist’s ideal.” The Platform - Shiroma Silva
