Set in Casablanca in 1997, the film makes good use of period pop music and the fads and fashions of the nineties in Morocco. The city’s golden youth, the offspring of the rich, are enchanted with excess – romance, parties, friendship, music and fast cars. Meanwhile they are all approaching graduation and the anxiety of moving on after high school. This is the Marock where Rita, age seventeen, feels at home, in a lifestyle which severely collides with her country’s traditions. She falls in love with the beautiful flashy Youri and, though Jewish and Muslim people can co-exist peacefully in Casablanca, there are limits! This love is a direct challenge to the contradictions of her social class, her family, and especially her big brother, Mao, who believes that the future lies only in a return to traditional values.
