a film by Maryam Touzani. Starts In Arabic with German subtitles.
Abla runs a popular bakery in the narrow streets of Casablanca’s old town. Mother of eight-year-old Warda, the widowed forty-something is facing a busy day-to-day life. When her routine is broken by a knock on the door, she is still unaware that her life is about to change forever. On the doorstep stands Samia, a pregnant young woman asking for a place to stay in exchange for help around the house and in the bakery. While Abla does not want to engage with this stranger promising nothing but trouble, little Warda immediately takes to Samia. One night turning into several, the coolly detached Abla increasingly fails to hide the fact that Samia is an unexpected asset to her bakery business as well as her entire life. Adam is a bittersweet drama, carried by the exceptional Belgian-Moroccan star actress Lubna Azabal.
