Slima is a Moroccan prostitute. Her son Jallal is very attached to her. He helps him catch men, customers, soldiers from a military base. He speaks and fights for him. Together, they discovered Marilyn Monroe on television, fell in love with her and made her their protective goddess. From the 1980s to today, we follow their two destinies in parallel, from the city of Salé to Cairo, from Brussels to Casablanca. Pure and impure, this mother and her son continually reinvent the deep meaning of their eventful life and their attachment to Morocco, made of love and hatred. Step by step, they rediscover their religion, Islam, and live it in a new way. They will go to the end of this path. The tomb of the Prophet Mohammed in Medina for her. The explosion sublime for him.
