Synopsis

Casablanca. Larsen, a self-destructive has-been rocker, meets Rajae, a singer with a golden voice and a bad temper. They’re both running away: he from the heroin monkey on his back, she from life on the streets. Through their common passion for music, they fall madly in love. Rajae confides in Larsen, and he writes a rock anthem that tells her party-girl life better than she ever could. Their adventure rumbles and tumbles in this little-known, underground and dangerous Morocco, filled with music-buff pimps, torturer cops and pit-bull-raising ladies of the night. When Rajae breaks free by fighting back against her most cruel and powerful client, the lovers flee south, towards redemption. But they are being followed and their freedom spree might end in a bloody mess… Can their romance survive it?
