Zineb El Rhazoui is France’s most protected woman since the attack on the Charlie Hebdo magazine office in Paris. The Moroccan activist and journalist, and also co-editor alongside the editor-in-chief “Charb” Charbonnier of the comic book Muhammed’s life, had escaped the violence by sheer luck. The makers of the documentary had never expected to be able to record such course of events: they started following her when she was still living in Rabat, where she was the figurehead of the 20 February Movement, and travelled with her to France as she become an editor at Charlie Hebdo. Therefore, the spectator is confronted with raw dramatic moments, following how she tries to move on with her life, becoming a mother for the first time.
