A film about a Moroccan woman Hind who doesn't officially exist, because she was raped as a teenager, but who now is one particle of the greater political change sweeping across the Arab region. After being raped at the age of 15, Hind was kicked out of her home by parents to whom she’d lost her value as a virgin. Lacking in any legal status (as her family kept her documents) she had to give away her children. Living in penury, she turned to prostitution and wedding dancing, a very low status and very low paid occupation. The film follows her frustrated attempts to get her ‘identity’ and children back and looks as Morocco’s deeply patriarchal society and the wider context of women's lives there.
