In a Parisian cab, a man learns from a Moroccan fortune-teller that his sister is about to die. In an attempt to thwart the prediction, the brother embarks on a fictional journey between Morocco, Israel and Paris. Based on family archives and excerpts from the trilogy written and created by Ronit and Shlomi Elkabetz, Cahiers Noirs invites us into the intimacy of a Jewish-Arab family. An imaginary story in which brother and sister revisit the past and present to defy an inexorable future. But the shadow of the prophecy always looms large, in life as in the movies.
