Casablanca’s stinking alleys are the only home that 19 year-old Youssef El-Mekki has ever known. Raised by his mother in a one-room home, the film stars flickering on the local cinemas screen offer the only glimmer of hope to his frustrated dreams of escape. Until, that is, the father he thought dead turns out to be very much alive.
