Snoopy is a talented 26-year old who dreams of making it as a world-famous circus artist. But Morocco’s conservative society does not like oddballs like him. A film about growing up between the Arab Spring and Islam, about Morocco’s only circus school and perhaps North Africa’s most splendid hipster moustache.
