Summary, etc.:
Ten year-old Yachine and his 13-year-old brother Hamid live in Sidi Moumen, an impoverished slum on the outskirts of Casablanca. Hamid, though just a child, works hard to sustain his family by any means, but eventually get involved with the "wrong crowd" and becomes one of the local neighborhood bosses. Yet, he continues to fiercely protect his brother Yachine - until the day he is thrown into prison. After years in jail, Hamid returns home a changed man: he is now an Islamic fundamentalist.
