Exit Marrakech

When 17-year-old Ben visits his father Heinrich in Marrakech, it is the start of an adventurous journey through a foreign country with a picturesque charm and a rough beauty where everything appears possible, including whether father and son will lose each other for good or find one another again.

Heinrich, a celebrated theater director, is taking part in an international festival in Morocco, but with father and son being unused to such proximity, all their old grievances and conflicts resurface, in addition to which, they both inflict new wounds on one another.

Whilst the two of them drift further and further apart, Ben opens himself up increasingly more to the foreign country and tries to find his own way in this unknown world, far from his father's luxury hotel. He falls in love with the young Karima, escapes with her to her distant home and encounters an archaic society in which the highest value is placed on family honor.

In "Exit Marrakech" the colorful life in the narrow streets, the picturesque charm of the oases, the rough beauty of the desert and the breathtaking Atlas Mountains are more than just a fascinating backdrop for a gripping and intense piece of cinema, they are also signposts on the protagonists' emotional maps.
