ADAM opens on Samia, who is pregnant and living on the street. While going door-to-door begging for work, she encounters Abla. Despite the best efforts of her young daughter, Warda, Abla’s world has shrunk and darkened since the death of her husband. When Abla opens her door to Samia – whose ‘condition’ has made her a social pariah in a country where illegitimate children struggle for rights – it seems as though she is the benevolent one. As Touzani’s film quietly unfolds, however, it becomes clear the relationship is profoundly reciprocal.

Maryam Touzani, Marokko, France, Belgium, 2019, 98 min. Arabic spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Lubna Azabal, Douae Belkhaouda, Nisrin Erradi, Aziz Hattab, Hasna Tamtaoui.
