A handful of Berber women from the Moroccan Middle Atlas, who weave carpets at night, reflect on their knowledge, their traditions, their lives and their future. They nurture a wealth of dreams, the lights of which they sometimes give glimpses of. Mothers, daughters, grandmothers, all work hard at domestic chores as well as making traditional carpets. In a self-sufficient economy, they remain without financial autonomy or recognition for their talent. They fiercely want to break free from their condition and offer their children an education and a future.

From Essaouira, on the Atlantic coast, they hear from women like themselves who have set up argan oil cooperatives and changed their lives. Taaborth and Erkia set off as explorers and, dazzled, brought back to their sisters the images of this first trip out of their mountains and a glimmer of hope.
