The streets of Casablanca provide the centrepiece for five separate narratives that all collide into one. Casablanca: vibrant and rough, inviting yet unforgiving. Four souls in search of truth, thirty years after a passionate teacher in the Atlas Mountains was put to silence. Through the echo of his shattered dreams, the disillusions of the four characters embody the sparks that will light the city in flames.
