Sinopsis

[EN] OMAYMA is a 9 year-old Moroccan girl who lives and studies in Barcelona. She has a sister, ARUB, who is 16 and whose hand will be asked for in marriage by the end of the day. At school, OMAYMA and her classmates look for their countries of origin in an atlas while telling the camera where they were born and where they feel they are from. Meanwhile, ARUB is at home where she is preparing flour to make bread and her mother reminds her what will happen at the end of the day.
Some teenagers, nearing the end of their secondary school studies, talk about education in Spain. ARUB is present too; the words she hears and the spontaneity with which they are spoken inspire her to take a decision. At the end of the day the big moment arrives for ARUB, but she’s not at home.
