Synopsis

In the working-class suburbs of Casablanca, father and son Hassan and Issam, struggle to survive from day to day. They get by on small-time deals and running errands for local gangs until one night; they are asked to carry out an abduction. Everything goes fine until their victim—an obese man—accidentally dies from a heart attack in the trunk of their car. Dib, who ordered the kidnapping, leaves Hassan and Issam no choice but to get rid of the body before dawn.
