After leaving Morocco, as a child, amidst racial tensions spurred by the Yom Kippur War, the son of a once famous Jewish musician returns to his home country to bury his father. With the help of a comical Muslim cab driver and a host of other quirky characters, he sets off on an adventure to track down the surviving members of his father’s orchestra to fulfill his father’s  dying wish, finding friendship and rediscovering his cultural roots along the way. The film expounds on Moroccan-Jewish life and generational divides with humor and heart. Ecumenical Jury Prize at the Montréal World Film Festival
