An elegant short about following one’s heart - by a young Nabil Ayouch and starring a teenage Jamel Debbouze - that seems like an omen, judging from the pair’s success.
A teenage boy in a small Moroccan village keeps talking about blue stones that he claims can be found in the desert. No one believes him except for an old man who encourages him to ignore the villagers’ scorn.
Nabil “Ali Zaoua” Ayouch’s celebrated third short film talks about conviction and features celebrated actor Jamel Debbouze (known from the Asterix movies as well as Rachid Bouchareb’s “Days of Glory” and “Outside the Law”) in his very first role ever.
