“So which are you: French, African, Moroccan or Arab?” This loaded question is posed to ten-year-old Sophia, the middle daughter of a Moroccan family living in a French suburb.

Eight years later, Sofia is a precocious, questioning and headstrong university student, who rebels against Moroccan tradition and becomes consumed by an overwhelming desire to return to her beloved France.
