Old Market Hall



20-year-old Sofia, a daughter of a well-to-do Casablanca family, goes in to labour during a family gathering. She can no longer deny, to herself or anyone else, that she is pregnant. In Morocco, the consequences of sex out of wedlock is an imprison-able offence. Whisked away from the party by her cousin, she gives birth in a hospital which admits her on one condition – she must produce her husband within 24 hours or face the consequences.
