Yael Abecassis, armed with a camera, follows her mother into a world where she had always been a stranger. “You know, daughter, Morocco is a kind of therapy...” For the first time, mother and daughter embark on a journey together - from a childhood in the mellah of Casablanca to the dunes of Ashdod and back to Morocco. Along the way, her mother becomes the legendary and world-famous Moroccan singer Raymonde El Bidaoia. During their journey, Yael discovers a woman who articulates her weaknesses and the complexities of her choices with keen self-awareness. They become twined together by guilt, admiration, pain - and above all else - limitless love and music.
