Abstract:Rough cut of the final film. In 2004, the King of Morocco launched an Equity and Reconciliation Commission to investigate State violence during the Years of Lead. For three years, the film follows four families in their search for the truth. Activist, young rebel soldier or simple citizen, either they or their relations were imprisoned in different parts of Morocco. Each person tries to 'find out', discover a 'reason', to be able to mourn. But forty years later, the State secret finally unveils the existence of another, more intimate secret, the family secret. They all feel the need to reconstruct history and recover their parents, taken from them twice over, once by their disappearance and another by the secret. [Abstract reproduced from dvd-video]
