Hassan’s life is a miserable mix of workplace bullying and petty crime until a pillow - of all things - changes everything
Hassan’s life is not an easy one. He has become the scapegoat of one of his colleagues, who blames him for everything that goes wrong at work, and, in an effort to find a way out of his miserable situation, he has developed a swindling scheme in the neighbourhood where he lives. One day he finds a pillow, which will change his life as he knows it.
Brahim Chikri started his filmmaking career after completing a PhD in sociology and the producer Nabil Ayouch – a veritable film industry unto himself - is the man behind a number of hugely successful Moroccan films, among them the multi-award winning Ali Zaoua Prince of the Streets.
