Zoubir has qualms about the scams that made him rich and embarks on a journey of reconciliation with Jeloul, a taxi driver.
Zoubir is a wheeler and dealer who owes his fortune to his scheming ways rather than honesty and hard work. Known as a difficult man, he nevertheless enjoys the respect of family members and employees. Haunted by bad conscience he embarks on a journey to visit the victims of his scams in the company of the taxi driver Jelloul.
Zoubir & Jeloul is Hicham Jebbari’s first feature film. 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.
