Synopsis:

Once upon a time there was a transvestite tailor who made the best Arab
clothing in the entire city: his name was Shakira (Aziz Ahmeri) and he was
to make the wedding gown for a young woman who was soon to be
married: Zina (Ghizlane Waldi). The problem was that Zina had already lost
her virginity and this is forbidden in the Arab world. In order to return
to “kilometer zero,” the two decide to drive an old Alfa Romeo sports car
from Torino all the way to Morocco and… this is the beginning of a voyage
that will save her life.

Directors' Biographies:

DAVIDE SORDELLA: Studied in London at the London International Film
School, directed by Mike Leigh. From 1996 to 2000 he worked in Latin
America for various international agencies and organizations directing
documentaries. From 2000 to 2002 he directed numerous shorts in various
countries (UK, Israel, Nepal, etc.). His first feature film, “Fratelli di
Sangue,” was presented at the Venice Film Festival in 2006.
“Corazones de Mujer” is his second film. He is now working in Japan on his
third film, “Sleeping Doll,” an international co-production.

PABLO BENEDETTI: He studied at the London International Film School,
directed by Mike Leigh, where he developed skills in the art of film
making, and specialized in directing. In 2003 he began an intense
experience with Lindsay Kemp. In 2004, during a long tour in Spain and
Italy he made Gota Roja, a portrait of this extraordinary artist. The next
year, 2005, he directed Bluemist, about the competitive apnea world
