Raymonde – Diva, queen, enigma, inspiration, survivor, widow, woman, and mother.
Armed with a camera, internationally acclaimed Israeli actress Yaël Abecassis (Amos Giati’s Kadosh and Alila, Shlomi Elkabetz’s Seven Days, Prisoners Of War) followed her mother and stepped into a world where she had always been a stranger.
For the first time, they embark on a journey together: from a childhood in the mellah of Casablanca to the dunes of Ashdod and back to Morocco, where her mother became the legendary Raymonde El Bidaouia – a world-famous Moroccan singer.
