Sofia is unaware that she is pregnant until she unexpectedly gives birth out of wedlock, in violation of Moroccan law. Faced with 24 hours to provide the father's identification papers, she's forced to track down his family. First time writer-director Meryem Benm'barek's astute skewering of modern Moroccan hypocrisy won her the Best Screenplay prize at Cannes.

Showcasing more than 17 films from five countries and four continents, our 7th French Cinema Now features legendary directors like Agnès Jaoui, Laurent Tirard, and Xavier Giannoli working alongside the new wave of filmmakers such as Meryem Benm'Barek, Victor Saint Macary, Ian Lagarde, and Carine Tardieu.
