Personal documentary by a director torn between two cultures. His parents were born in Morocco, but he feels primarily Dutch. How can he bridge the gap between him and his next of kin?
The Dutch director A.H., born in Noord-Brabant, has been experiencing pressure from his family for years to focus more on his Moroccan identity. Aiman does not feel the need, because he considers himself a Dutchman, too. In this personal documentary, he examines the cultural differences between himself and his family, before he will have to cut some knots. Either he conforms to the wishes of his family or he follows his own path, possibly jeopardising the relationship with his parents.
