Description: This fact-based French-Moroccan film won the Best First Feature award at the 1997 Cairo Film Festival. After U.S. training, ophthalmologist Taoufik returns to Casablanca to launch a practice with his wife Sophia. At a luxury Tangier hotel, he is drugged while Sophia is abducted, raped, and left in the street. Carrying his brother's gun, Taoufik gets a hotel staffer to lead him to the kidnappers. After shooting a man who turns out to be with the police, the couple flee from corrupt cops, and a chase is conducted over the countryside with Taoufik holding the key evidence -- a videotape of the rape. The title translates as predestined. Shown at the 1998 Rotterdam Film Festival.~ Bhob Stewart, All Movie Guide
