The CleanerThe Cleaner
Sarah Lamrini / Morocco

In the women's market, Naïma waits every day for a client to show up.

She offers herself as a housemaid or a prostitute, depending on what opportunities appear. For more than 20 years, Naïma has spent her life between the dirty sidewalks of the market and the clients' houses, in adjunction to building her life as a mother and a wife in a slum of the suburbs. For either role she occupies, Naïma is enslaved to either her clients or to her family.
