  • Controversial movie in Morocco: the actress Loubna Abidar was assaulted and forced to flee in France.
  • Nabil Ayouch is a multi-awarded director.

Mrs. Gallienne, a rather temperamental upper middle-class lady, has three children, two of whom she considers as her sons and another she calls Guillaume.

Through a series of painful experiences, Guillaume will discover who he actually is.
