ZIYARA gives the testimony to Moroccan Muslims who speak about Jews with a sense of nostalgia; the film gathers their memories, their feelings, and their ideas of this sensitive subject. Scene after scene, character after character, the film depicts the proximity that was the daily life and relationship between Jews and Muslims in Morocco. It documents how an Arab country and a Muslim society continue, against all odds, to take care with grace and innocence of a millennial Jewish heritage after the departure of most of its Jews from Morocco.
