A Thousand Nights and one Dawn offers a poetic look at the life of Morocco’s night watchmen – combining poverty, wisdom and hope. The film shows us these workers’ lives and stories. The night shapes their character, their behaviour – and their vision of the world. A reflection on the time of those nights and space, both prison and escape route to other universes.
