The arrival of an attractive young apprentice disrupts the lives of a middle-aged couple Halim and Mina. They have been married for some time and produce exquisitely finished hand-sewn garments. However, their union contains a secret, which must be kept quiet in a strictly conservative country like Morocco. This is a sensual, thoughtful and intensely moving film, exploring the complexities of sexuality, marriage and human fragility.

Brilliantly acted, it is an overwhelmingly tender character study and a thoughtful investigation into a country’s relationship with tradition and modernity.
