The Arab World’s first female aviatrix
Casablanca, 1947 – two destinies meet at crossroads. Morocco is battling for its independence whilst the young Touria Chaoui dreams of becoming the country’s first aviatrix. But between racism, machismo and misogynistic prejudice … Touria is continually confronted by adversity inside the society she grows up in. Just as the nation struggles against the forces of colonialism, Touria will challenge the mentality of her time to meet her extraordinary destiny: to fly a plane, which no Arab women had ever accomplished before! But ground-breaking courage is needed to break free of age-old traditions… And pioneers who dare to pave the way are often punished.
A series based on a true story. A saga in which the fates of a country and of one young girl, explosively collide.
