Life is a starting point and an endpoint. The film counts the return trip of thirty Moroccan immigrants from their country of emigration to their home country in a bus. It tells the several events happening among a group of people forced to coexist in a single, narrow space; it’s in a bus. Despite the differences of their worlds and their cultural backgrounds, from the extremist to the prostitute, the revolutionary Marxist, the musicians and others, the experience becomes an interesting laboratory of events bringing us from northern Morocco to the south in an almost closed space with all the aesthetic and the absurdity of a journey. It’s the journey of life.
