SYNOPSIS ET DÉTAILS

The film follows the life of Hamid, a young man living in the Sidi Moumen slum of Casablanca. Hamid struggles to survive without succumbing to the daily violence that surrounds him.
He works as a fruit vendor and is threatened by armed men looking to take a cut of his profits. Exhausted by the daily fight to make a living, Hamid’s life takes a turn when his brother returns from jail a changed man. Together they develop a devotion to religious extremism, the only light they see in their difficult situation.

Les Chevaux de dieu explores the forces of violence and poverty that can lead a person to do unthinkable things.
In this case, the suicide bombing aimed at Europeans and diplomats living in Casablanca in 2003.
