Bab El Ward

A dramatic and neo-realist comedy in the Moroccan language, centered on the life of the Vaknin family, a Moroccan immigrant family in a picturesque town on the outskirts, moments of laughter rub shoulders with moments of tears and a daily existential war. Although they live in the country, their hearts are still in beloved and distant Morocco.
