Synopsis

Would you take your three little girls, leave home and cross the desert on foot for several weeks, away from your husband or wife? Former globe-trotter, Aurelia, did it in her a sort of middle-age crisis, seeking the true meaning of motherhood and femininity. Aurelia and her daughters trek across the Atlas in order to dis- cover the country and meet with the farmers and the nomadic tribes. All along the journey, they will endure fatigue, withstand stress, and experience hard moments – but also find the key to overcome these. Should a mother really forget herself?
