‘Behind Closed Doors’ is a portrait of a farming family living in one of the most marginalised regions of northern Morocco. Only one thing grows in their brutal climate: kif. This taboo is seen through the eyes of the children, who learn the gestures of growing the illicit crop before their mother tongue. This is a film about parents fighting to provide role models against all odds. They inherited the lands, and stand somewhere between the fear of selling out their roots and the dream of fleeing.
