Focusing on former child bride Rabha El Haimer and her young daughter, this documentary follows the efforts of single mothers in Morocco to protect the rights of their children


Audiences will be muttering the ‘B’ word watching this shocking documentary about Moroccan men who abandon girlfriends once pregnant, leaving their children as social and legal outcasts. But there’s hope as spirited subject Rabha El Haimer tries to legitimise her child.

An impassioned, fly-on-the-wall look at a serious social issue.
