Mohamed Ismail`s Goodbye Mothers, expected to spark controversy in Morocco, dares to depict the peaceful co-existence in 1960s Casablanca of two families - one Muslim and one Jewish - during the historical period known as the "Black Years of Emigration," when there Moroccan Jews faced a pervading sense of hesitation between two conflicting desires: remaining in Morocco or uprooting themselves to emigrate to Israel.
