Adil struggles to find himself in Morocco; all his dreams lie on the other side of the Mediterranean. After deciding to follow his desire for a better life, Adil joins his brother in Bologna. There, he leads two lives: in the light of day he cares for his disabled older brother; at night, he works as a trafficker.
Adil finds himself living a life no better than the one he left behind, and decides to hit the road yet again. Rachid, a more reasonable and simple man, remains in Casablanca, making a living through his Pirated DVD stand.
Light is shed on the reality of Morocco's youth, many of who look to Europe to escape unemployment and poverty, only to realize that it's in fact far from the heaven they had hoped for.
