Original Title:


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.
