Caftan shop owners Halim and Mina keep his homosexuality a secret, but the arrival of an apprentice causes tension.

Halim has long been married to Mina, with whom he runs a traditional caftan store in the ancient medina of Salé, in Morocco. The couple has always lived with Halim’s secret, his homosexuality, which he has learned to keep hidden. Mina’s illness and the arrival of a young apprentice will upset this balance. United in their love, each will help the others face their fears.
