Prior to becoming an oriental dance teacher in the South of France, Lola used to be Farid. In his former life, Farid loved a woman, and had a child with her. Young Zino grew up thinking his father had abandoned him. After the death of his mother, Zino is told by a solicitor that Farid lives in France. He then sets upon tracking down his father.
