The movie try a step by a€?Munta€?, a team of Dutch Moroccans, exactly who (for the moment) don’t want to go general public employing actual labels. The movie itself should tell the story, the Munt personnel answered a request by email. a€?As quickly once we beginning talking about the film, we will fill in the head for anyone, and that’s perhaps not the goal.a€?
