Mahjouba is a feminist activist whose wisdom and nonjudgmental manner helps these girls face the realities of the situation they are in and she helps them reconcile with the families they thought would surely disown them.

Mothers follows Edbouche and her team, and the developments in the lives of these pregnant women, filming moments from their arrival at the association to the birth of their child, and sometimes the reunification with their family. We gradually learn to see these women's problems, including the dilemmas of modern Morocco, through Edbouche's compassionate eyes. By Myriam Bakir, 62' 2020 Production

Går utvecklingen mot ökad jämställdhet åt rätt håll?
