THE END opens in July 1999, on the eve of the death of Morocco's longtime monarch Hassan II (1961-99), whose demise marked both the end of an era as well as the filmmaker's childhood.

The film tells the story of a marginalised youth, Mikhi (M'key), a parking guard, who falls in love with Rita, a young woman whose virginity is ensured by her gang-member brothers by keeping her enchained. M'key is the protégé of Daoud, the police commissioner whose nickname is "the system's pit-bull" and who was responsible for torturing and killing, years before, Rita's father. Daoud appears to be a stand-in for Hassan II, seen here as a kind of super cop.

The film's visuals are purposely restricted to a monochromatic palette, in order "to give the film a particular ambiance, to distill the atmosphere of a legend."
