Synopsis

Algeria region of the high flatlands. As Islamist groups continue to spread terror, Rashid, a young Jihadist, leaves the mountains to return to his village. In keeping with the law “of pardon and
national harmony”, he has to surrender to the police and give up his weapon. He thus receives amnesty and becomes a “repenti”. But the law cannot erase his crimes and for Rashid it is the beginning of a one-way journey of violence, secrets and manipulation.
