A Moroccan teenager prepares to bid farewell to his village and the traditions he grew up with: he will soon move to his father’s house in the Netherlands.

Seventeen-year-old Hassan is on the verge of swapping his Moroccan mountain village Tizi N’oucheg for his father’s house in the Netherlands. He finally received his visa and by now all his fellow-villagers know he will soon be a foreigner. In this short drama, Hassan thinks about what he wants to take, how he wants to leave behind his house and how he can best bid farewell to his friends, his motherland and the traditions he grew up with.
