Storyline

Malika is the leader of the all-female punk rock band Traitors, with a strong vision of the world, her hometown of Tangier, and her place in it. When she needs money to save her family from eviction, and to realize her dreams for the band, Malika agrees to a fast cash proposition: a smuggling run over the mountains for a dangerous drug dealer. But her companion on the road is Amal, a burnt-out young drug mule, who Malika decides to free from her enslavement to the dangerous drug dealers. The challenge will put Malika's rebel ethos to the test, and to survive she will have to call on all her instincts and nerve. Written by Anonymous

'If you are a hammer, strike!'
5 February 2015 | by gradyharpSee all my reviews

American writer/director Sean Gullette takes a stab at creating an art film made in Morocco and in many ways succeeds. The film is shot in Arabic, French and English with subtitles.

Tomboy Malika, a young punk rocker is desperate to make money and becomes the leader of Traitors, an all-female punk rock band, has a strong vision of the world, her hometown of Tangier, and her place in it. When a producer offers to help her cut a demo if she can pay for the studio, she has to work at her mechanic father's garage. There she meets minor gangster Samir, who offers her a big chunk of change if she'll help smuggle hashish from Morocco. Border controls, meaner gangsters and a burnt out fellow mule create predictable problems. Though the story is sluggish and predictable it is refreshing to see an Arabic woman with ambitions beyond marriage. WE also get a stronger inside look at the underbelly of Tangiers without the car chases and explosions that usually accompany films about Morocco. Chaimae Ben Acha as Malika gives evidence of a strong actress in the making.
