The Moroccan Entry for the 2018 Academy Awards, is a searing and mesmerizing drama. Five Moroccans from different social and religious strata are pushed to the fringe by their extremist government. Spanning three decades and several storylines, director Nabil Ayouch weaves an intricate tale of lost loves, forbidden desires and fragile dreams in modern day Morocco.
