a morning with gold in its mouth

When Meriem, a young Moroccan woman, receives a visa to study photography in the U.S., she feels her future opening up. Despite her savings, she needs help from her family to make the trip. Her mother’s small savings, however, have been promised to Meriem’s grandmother for a religious pilgrimage to Mecca.
