Prendre le Large

Gaël Morel

Saturday, 30 March – h 21.45 • Cinema PortoAstra


Edith’s life completely changes when the firm where she works decides to move to Morocco. Between unemployment and moving with the firm, she chooses the second option, since she has nobody to stay for. So she moves to Tangier. It’s not easy to work in a new factory while adapting to a new country, but Edith finds some consolation in the friendship with Mina, the owner of the boarder house where she’s staying. It is thanks to this connection that Edith’s life takes a new turn.
