A Musical Journey in the Footsteps of Judeo-Moroccan Music.

A journey that transcends boundaries in the Jewish-Moroccan world,

where the music is a mirror onto a historic period,

evoking nostalgia between Muslims and Jews,

and offering a glimpse of the interaction between East and West.

The film locates celebrated Moroccan musical stars of the 20th century

and gives a final voice to a generation that is fast disappearing.
