Casablanca, Morocco. 27-year-old Zineb is a repeat offender behind bars. When she learns that her wild and fanciful nine-year-old daughter, Inès, has been expelled from school and sent to a children’s home, she escapes from prison, kidnaps her daughter, and heads south. On the road, she holds up a truck driven by the young Asma and takes her hostage. Zineb is loud spoken and unpredictable. Asma, on the other hand, is quiet and hardened to life. They appear to have nothing in common, but Inès’ fate brings them together in a mission to offer the child a proper future. The trio soon has the police on their tail, thus starting a long escape that takes them across the rugged red terrain and flower-filled valleys of the Atlas to finally reach the Atlantic coast.
