About the Film
Abla lives with her eight-year-old daughter, Warda, and runs a modest bakery from her home in Casablanca. One day, a knock on the door brings Samia, a pregnant young woman looking for a job and a place to stay. Initially reluctant to allow a stranger into her home, Abla has a change of heart and takes her in. Adam tackles taboo subjects in the Arab world through a poignant portrait of two women, which touches the heart due in large measure to the superb performances of Lubna Azabal (Abla) and Nisrin Erradi (Samia) working with the promising first-time director Maryam Touzani.
