Based on a true story, Hajja depicts Algerian shopkeeper Hakim’s search for his missing 73-year-old mother. Hakim crosses half of Oran, a port city in northwest Algeria, as he looks for her. Meanwhile, his mother, Hajja, is on a defiant journey of her own to her house in Oudja, Morocco. Without a passport or car, she decides to walk across the closed border. This film is about love, forgiveness and a strong Arab woman who, not fully understanding or respecting the modern concept of borders, refuses to take no for an answer.
