    Synopsis:
    The early 1970s. Escaping grey London and a failed relationship, Julia and her two daughters take off for Morocco in search of peace, love and happiness. Whilst the children are free to enjoy the colour and life of Marrakesh, the city offers less freedom for a penniless mother trying to balance maternal responsibility with the search for self-fulfillment. Julia's struggle is transformed, however, by the charming and feckless Bilai, who captivates them all, until Julia finds the adventure has a price...

    In adapting Esther Freud's semi-autobiographical novel for the screen, Billy MacKinnon has perfectly captured Julia's love affair with another culture through the clear-eyed vulnerability - and occasional exasperation - of her daughters, six-year-old Lucy and eight-year-old Bea.
