Synopsis: Summer 1955. Kamal, an 11-year-old boy of the Medina of Fez, is experiencing the last months before Morocco's independence. In contact with Aïcha and her fellow students of the Qaraouiyine university, he discovers and takes part in the fight for freedom.

Directors Bio: Abdelhaï Laraki is known for tackling sensitive themes in works that have been hailed by critics and acclaimed by audiences. He belongs to the new wave of Moroccan filmmakers of the 1990s. His cinema deals with political repression (Mona Saber, 2002), the power of money (Parfum De Mer, 2006) or sexual frustration (Love In The Medina, 2011). At the core of Love… is the debate on ‘Art Propre/Art sale’ that raged during the Arab Spring. The common thread running through his films is a reflection on human's relationship with history, power and religion.
