Nadia is an over-protected five-year- old girl living in Casablancas slum separated from the rest of the city by the wall that surrounds it. She is about to start school, which proves to be an upheaval for her parents, especially for Souad, her mother. Souad remains calm as long as Nadia stays within the shantytown walls, but her serenity evaporates once Nadia transcends the slum’s borders. Then one day, the municipality starts painting this wall. Why this sudden interest?
