How to get rid of an inconvenient dead body? Father and son Hassan (Abdellatif Masstouri) and Issam (Ayoub Elaid) are used to scraping a living by doing jobs for Casablanca gangs, but find themselves in deeper trouble than when a man they were ordered to kidnap dies in their car. Hassan, clinging to a shred of decency, insists on giving the victim a proper burial. That begins their wild goose chase through the city’s slums in search of a resting place beyond the warring gangsters’ territories, squabbling over what to do and how to do it; this is a tense, punchy film set in a violent milieu, but absurdly funny with it.
