In her extraordinary debut feature, Moroccan filmmaker Asmae El Moudir creates a handmade replica of the Casablanca neighbourhood where she grew up, to help her explore the many mysteries of her family's past.

There, in exquisite re-enactments, she starts to unravel the layers of deception and intentional forgetting that have shaped her life.

Questioning why there are so few photographs of her as a child and reaching back to the Casablanca Bread Riots of 1981, El Moudir brings together her family and neighbours to address the unspeakable, in a riveting and cathartic act of filmmaking and recovery.
