Synopsis

In the early years of the reign of Hassan II, Houcine, a fan of the new king is the director of a popular orchestra and the proud father of Mimou. Houcine and his family live in the family home of his wife, Halima, where a stream of colourful characters cross paths with the orchestra members and the dancers who accompany them. This is a very particular troupe, male musicians who are sometimes forced to pretend that they are blind in order to play at parties reserved for women in conservative Moroccan familes. Things get really interesting when young Minou runs into Chama, the neighbour’s new maid...
