Sharmill Films and Luna palace Cinemas are delighted to announce the exclusive release of acclaimed Moroccan film Adam at Luna Leederville. 

Fresh from its selection in Cannes Un Certain Regard, and PIAF, Adam is a moving and heart-warming story of food, friendship and female empowerment, set against the backdrop of a modern-day Casablanca medina.

The debut feature film from director Maryam Touzani, Adam explores the unlikely friendship between two very different women – one a lonely widow and the other unmarried and pregnant - whose paths cross in a tiny bakery. Initially closed off from the world, the widowed Alba (Lubna Azabal) is reluctantly charmed by pregnant Samia’s (Nisrin Erradi) eagerness to lend a hand with baking. When conservative values threaten both women’s freedoms as Samia struggles to prepare for her growing baby, the bond they grow to share could be the saving of them both.
