1950s Morocco: murder, magic and divided loyalties... Hamou Badi is born in a mountain village with the magical signs of the zouhry on his hands. The zouhry is a figure of legend, capable of finding all manner of treasure.

But instead of finding treasure, young Hamou finds a body. Haunted by this unsolved murder, Hamou goes on to train as a police officer in Casablanca. Yet the city is trapped in a nationalist uprising, and Hamou is soon torn between his heritage and his employers.

How will he choose between all he knows and all he loves?
