Synopsis

A contemporary morality tale from the Casablanca slums to the High Court, Bastards follows a group of Moroccan women fighting to legitimise their children. As Morocco becomes the first Muslim regime to grant legal rights to single mothers, British filmmaker Perkin gained unprecedented access over several weeks embedded in the community. Weaving together intimate personal stories with strikingly candid footage, the result is a powerful account of their collective struggle to be heard.
