Synopsis

Amin, a young architect living in Paris, returns suddenly to Fès, Morocco, where his uncle is dying. He has not spoken to the man who brought him up since he left Fès for Paris ten years earlier to study and settle. Amin's visits to the hospital reopen deep wounds of his painful childhood. His long-time friend, the craftsman Aziz, exhorts him not to surrender to resentment of the past. The uncle's death does not soothe the young man's agonies, forcing him to find his own answers within his soul.
