Halim and Mina run a traditional caftan store in one of Morocco’s oldest medinas. In order to keep up with the demands of their customers, they hire Youssef, who is dedicated to learning the art of embroidery and tailoring from Halim. But is their relationship purely professional? It doesn’t take long for Mina to realise that her husband is profoundly moved by this young man.
