27-year-old Zineb is a repeat offender behind bars. When she learns that her fanciful and wild eight-year-old daughter, Inès, has been expelled from school and sent to a children’s home, she escapes from prison, kidnaps her daughter, and heads south. On the road, she holds up a truck driven by the young Asma, and takes her hostage.
Zineb is loud-spoken and unpredictable. Asma, on the other hand, is quiet and hardened to life. They appear to have nothing in common, but the fate of Inès brings them together in a mission to offer the child a future. The trio soon has the police on their tail, thus starting a long escape that takes them across the rugged red terrain and flower-filled valleys of the Atlas to finally reach the Atlantic coast.
