Anyone who, as a Muslim, kicks the bucket in Belgium, saddles their next of kin with a delicate dilemma: “Do we bury them here or in the country of origin?” The young Ishmael ‘Smile’ Boulasmoum, who together with his sister inherits his father’s repatriation business, finds a solution: what if we bring soil from Morocco to bury our dead in it? We’re starting a business in soil! Without realizing it, they open Pandora’s ‘coffin’.
