A TV crew is shooting a film about the social upheavals in Morocco in the wake of the Arab Spring. The situation on the streets of Casablanca is chaotic and the three-man crew have to deal with both police and criminals. Then, in the midst of all the chaos, they come across a man, apparently confused and lost. They sense a story and stick close by him. The terrible tale he has to tell goes back to 1981, when Morocco was also riven by upheavals. A film about a man and a country in a no-man's-land between past and future.
