The year is 1951, and just as the recently born State of Israel takes its first toddling steps toward the future, a young Jewish woman in Morocco watches as her mothers last breath reduces her into a thing of the past. Amid her sorrow and mourning, Tamar Ben Zaken must now sacrifice her goals and ambitions in order to care for her father and siblings. To make matters worse, their secure and privileged life may be coming to an end at the hands of political and social changes that threaten the peaceful coexistence between Moroccan Jews and Muslims, who are outraged by Israels establishment.

But when Tamars father marries a superficial woman, Tamar flees to live with her cousin in the big city of Marrakesh. While there, she studies at a prestigious French school for women, and meets Daniel, the love of her life. But Daniel harbors a secret that threatens their hopes and dreams of building a family

Inspired by actual events, One Moroccan Woman sets interpersonal drama against the backdrop of political, social, and religious volatility. Experience tragedies, challenges, and triumphs of the human spirit, as Tamar discovers that fate has a plan she couldve never written for herself.
