From 9 to 14-years-old, the life of Jamila, a young girl of Moroccan origin who lives in a port city in southern Italy. Rebellious, feisty and street-smart, Jamila has a lot of potential but has to deal with a difficult life: her mother loses her job as a cleaning lady and Jamila retires from middle school. The dream of returning one day to her home country and her job at "Californie" beauty salon push the girl forward through her tumultuous pre-teen years. A unique coming-of-age story filmed over the course of five years.
