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.
