From 1958 to 1959 the inhabitants of Rif provinces suffered fierce repression in response to their uprising against the creation of the new Moroccan state . in their eyes, the centralist policy of the kingdom destroyed their political, social and economic structure. Fear has settled in the Moroccan rif for over 50 years by creating a real taboo around the subject.. There is a concerted effort on the part of NGOs in the Rif to keep the stories alive, as to not forget. However, there is also the element of trauma to consider. Many refuse to talk about what happened in 1958-59 not because they forgive the Moroccan government, but because it is too painful to talk about. This film was funded by Human Rights Council and the European Union..
