Les 3M is a trio of friends. Malika, Moïse and Mathieu, a Muslim, a Christian and a Jew, all born on the same day, in the same city and in the same neighborhood of Casablanca. Despite their religious and cultural differences, a strong friendship links the three during their childhood and their teenage. However, political events unfolding in Morocco and in the world set them apart. Moïse leaves Morocco for Israel while Mathieu goes to France. Malika lives this separation in a mixed feeling of pain and incomprehension. They meet again and will try, despite the events that reveal sometimes brutally their differences, to stay united and maintain their bonds. Their relationship evolves from friendship to love, from interest in politics to commitment. They make a promise to meet at their birthday every ten years and to testify on their period by making a documentary.
Will they succeed in keeping their friendship above all? Will they succeed in freeing themselves from the madness of the world and be witnesses for the generations to come?

This film is in fact a beautiful story of friendship and love that transcends differences and identities and traces more than 60 years of history, exposing the political events that have marked contemporary history, including the Six-Day War, the Camp David Accords, the Iran-Iraq and Afghanistan wars, the Intifada, the Oslo Accords, the 2003 attacks in Casablanca and, finally, the Arab Spring, and their impacts on the coexistence between peoples.
This feature film also sheds light on several values, including the peaceful coexistence that existed between Jews, Christians and Muslims in Morocco and the nobility of friendship that reduces differences and transcends borders. It is a strong film that transmits messages of peace, openness and acceptance of others (...)
A hymn to tolerance, an admirable cinematographic work, to see absolutely.
