Synopsis

Coming from a humble village, Hanane is determined to make a name for herself as the founder and member of the only female troupe of horsewomen representing Marrakech. . But the challenges are daunting, as Fantasia, a Moroccan festivity of battle bravery, is a costly and traditionally male-only activity. Hanane is ready to run every gauntlet though, and she’s willing to sacrifice her private life, threaten her family’s financial situation, and face the prejudices of a patriarchal society. Her ambition is to achieve a good show at her district’s prestigious yearly Moussem, opposite the best riders in the kingdom. This is about more than mere recognition—her status as a woman and her social position are at stake.
