Larsen, a hasbeen rocker who lost his voice, falls in love with Rajae a prostitute with a golden voice. He writes songs that tell her life in the street of Casablanca, an underground and unkwown Marocco. They love each other but their love puts upside down their microcosm populated by mackerel music lovers, cops torturers and breeders of pit-bulls.

They are pursued and their libertarian impulse will turn to bloody drama... Will their romance survive ?
