Synopsis

Michael left Casablanca as a child during the racial tensions of the Yom Kippur War and never looked back. After years of buried memories, the brooding son returns home to make peace with his past. When death claims his father before they can reconcile, Michael seeks to understand the legacy of this iconic singer of yesteryear. With the help of a comical Muslim cab driver, he sets off on an adventure to track down the surviving members of his father's orchestra, finding friendship and rediscovering his cultural roots along the way.
