In Morocco, more and more women give birth outside of marriage, known as single mothers. In the predominantly Muslim country, this is still considered to be a violation of law and religion but also of morals and traditions.
The documentary "Jewels of grief" explores this phenomenon with the biography of two single mothers in Morocco - Nadia and Nezha - who are ostracized by family, society and the state and suffer discrimination.
Besides the two mothers in the film, also representatives of religion, humanitarian organizations, human rights groups and the Moroccan state to speak and illustrate the complexity of the dimensions of this phenomenon.
