Sofia

A Feature film by Meryem Benm'Barek

Produced by Curiosa Films

Production year : 2018

    Synopsis

    Sofia lives with her parents in a modest apartment in Casablanca. While having lunch with her family one day, she is suddenly stricken with violent abdominal pain. Her cousin Kenza, a medical student, is feeling her belly when water starts running down her thighs: Sofia is about to give birth. On the pretext of Sofia having overeaten, the two women head to the hospital. Reluctant at first, the personnel eventually agree to take Sofia in, on the condition that she provide her marriage certificate before the next morning; otherwise they will alert the authorities. After Sofia gives birth, she and Kenza immediately leave the hospital in search of the child's father, launching themselves into a frantic nocturnal quest.
