Amine Bertale, nicknamed "Zero" is a police officer in his mid thirties, pacing the streets of Casablanca surrounded by loss and futility and the corruption of everyone around him. He is burdened with the care of his disabled father, from whom he bears constant curses. When he needs money, he cooperates with Mimi, to set up men looking for prostitutes. One day everything changes when he meets a mother looking for her missing daughter.
