The Healer


Abdou, a 16-year old teenager, living on the outskirts of a phosphate mining town called Khouribga. His adoptive mother Mbarka, is the neighbourhood midwife and healer.

Ch’Aayba, a thirty-year-old man, uncontrollable and ferociously cynical, is an eccentric pickpocket. Suffering from a skin disease, Abdou convinces him to come see Mbarka in order to get treatment: that’s how the fate of these three will entangle.
