520 |a Morocco, 1968: Two siblings, unusual for their biracial parentage--their father is Moroccan, their mother French--search for their place in a world not made to fit them. Aicha, strong-willed and studious, dreams of leaving Morocco to study medicine in her mother's homeland. Her younger brother, Selim, the family's errant misfit, will forge a path of rebellion among the European hippies descending en masse to practice drugs and free love. Children of the revolution, now coming of age in the violent, nihilistic "years of lead," they seem destined to echo their homeland's fate: teetering between liberation and corruption, idealism and compromise. Enduring racism and abandonment, and experiencing the thrills and terrors of freedom and the iron thralls of desire, they navigate a path toward themselves: who they are, and who they dream of becoming. In Watch Us Dance, Leila Slimani draws on her family's inspiring story to craft a bold, powerful chronicle of the relentless human quest for freedom and self-knowledge.
