    Synopsis: Filmed in three countries, this is an intimate portrait of a Moroccan family residing in Algeria who are adrift following the death of their mother Zineb, a notorious smuggler of gold and precious jewels. This turbulent family story brings to life cross-border identities, the influence of political context on individual lives, and the importance of the mother figure in Arab/Islamic cultures.
