Malika, leader of Traitors, an all-female punk rock band, has a strong vision of the world, her hometown of Tangier, and her place in it. When she needs money to save her family from eviction and to realize her dreams for the band, Malika agrees to a drug smuggling run over the mountains.

Our take

Spirited, youthful, angry: cinema turns punk rock in this debut feature. Set in contemporary Morocco, Traitors follows a maligned young woman and her battle against adversity in various forms. Told with a unique and rebellious sense of grace, this film is a rich spectacle of youth and individualism.
