On the hills of Tangier, in the midst of the forest, stands a decrepit ancestral home: La Mansouria. Lina lives there with her father Anis, her grandmother Amina, and the “good” Chinwiya, the young maid.. Amina has gathered the family to organize a wedding, but her real motive is to convince the relatives to accept a very rich offer on the estate from a developer.
But Anis refuses to sell. He wants to donate his share of the property to create a perpetual sanctuary for the birds that he and Lina love. Then, a mysterious fire comes and birds rain into the forest.
