Algeria today. Past and present collide in the lives of a newly wealthy property developer, a young woman torn between the path of reason and sentiment and an ambitious neurologist impeded by wartime wrongdoings. Three stories that plunge us into the human soul of a contemporary Arab society.
The Globe and Mail - Canada
“An intriguing first feature from writer-director Karim Moussaoui that explores the damaged emotional landscape of his homeland. At times recalls Abbas Kiarostami’s Through the Olive Trees”
The Hollywood Reporter
“It’s heartening to see such delicate stories of ordinary people come to the fore”
“A precise, patient, emphatic and elegiac look on the characters. A good-looking combination of emotion and meditation”
