Elias (Madi Belem), was raised by his grandmother in the heart of their Moroccan village, Tazzeka. She instructed him in the tastes and secrets of cooking traditional Moroccan cuisine. Years later, two events will change his life forever: meeting a famous Parisian chef and falling for the lovely Selma (Ouidad Elma). Elias decides to move to Paris where he soon experiences sad realities - financial despair and the precariousness of working as an undocumented immigrant. A new friend, Souleymane (Adama Diop) encourages him to rediscover his love for cooking.Tazzeka is a coming-of-age tale of exile and destiny coupled with first-time director-screenwriter Jean-Philippe Gaud’s realistic take on clandestine immigration in France.
