Synopsis

Ali is a young shepherd in the Moroccan countryside. One day, while leading his flock alongside the new highway running near the village, he finds a 200 dirham note. Like a gift from God, this note changes his life and gives him the illusion that he can cross the highway and make it to Casablanca. But the « visionary » youth quickly finds himself confronted with the glum reality of his village and family and the paradoxes of his country.
