Queensland Premiere | France/Morocco | Drama

Two women meet by chance and transform each other’s lives.

Abla runs a modest local bakery from her home in Casablanca where she lives alone with her 8-year-old daughter, Warda. When Samia, a young pregnant woman knocks on their door, Abla is far from imagining that her life will change forever.

The debut feature from Maryam Touzani has screened to critical acclaim internationally and is an exceptional story of friendship, courage and motherhood.
