The book is written following voices, laughter, desire, music; following the flight of sea gulls, the loving dialogue of doves, the ringing of bells, the aroma of incense, the light of a thousand candles, the cry of the waves as they crash on the rock walls of Mogador; following sleepless lovers who travel through time on sultry sheets, winds that come and go, rivers thirsty for sand, the Sahara desert challenging time, the goat trees and the most secret gardens that surprised the author that first night in the port of Mogador, and all the days and nights thereafter, nights in which he lived the magic of this walled city.
