In one of Morocco's oldest medinas, Halim and Mina run a traditional caftan store. Trade is busy, particularly with some of the demanding customers. To help keep up they employ a young man Youssef. The talented apprentice shows an utmost dedication in learning the art of embroidery and tailoring from Halim. Slowly Mina realizes how much her husband is moved by the presence of the young man.

“The acting was superb, and the story wonderfully poignant. Patient and carefully crafted, it's about the complexities of love and craft. One of the best films of 2022.”
