Until He's Back

39 mins


After learning that his son has died at sea trying to get to Spain, Ahmed Tchiche must find a way to get his son’s remains back home to Morocco so he and his family can have a proper goodbye. Ahmed and his family are not the only ones in a heavy-hearted state of limbo as many young Moroccan men disappear while crossing the dangerous 14-kilometer Strait of Gibraltar on their way to look for work in Spain. Faisal Bouhafs, a Moroccan immigrant living in Spain, volunteers to help Ahmed navigate Spanish bureaucracy, doing whatever it takes to bring his son home.
