Troubled teenager Ben (16) unintentionally confronts his father Heinrich (Tukur), a successful German theatre director staging a play in Marrakesh, with his past and his neglected responsibilities. After a falling out with his estranged father, Ben loses himself in the shadowy Medina and sleazy nightclubs of Marrakesh, where he meets a feisty Berber girl Karima (18) and follows her to her hometown, far beyond the city and across unfamiliar and barren land. She helps him gain the courage to stand up to his father. Written by
Growing up you will encounter many things that will amaze you or mature you. Going on a trip with your dad will open your eyes. Even if your dad is busy with business, you will learn things. This dad is not all cliché though, he does have an interest in his boy, even though he broke up with his mom a while ago.
But the boy has a mind of his own, trying and figuring things on his own, going places and doing things that might be considered stupid. Or just naive, as his nature seems to be. Someone who wants to explore and see things and help even if he doesn't understand how things work or what cultural differences might mean ... love conquers all? Maybe it's more like "life conquers all" and you should live it, as best as you can
