A Feature film by Djamila Sahraoui

Produced by Les Films d'Ici

Release in France : 13/09/2006


    Somewhere in Algeria, during the nineties.
    Amel is a doctor handling ER cases at a hospital. She tries, as best she can, to carry out her job and live her life despite civil war. One evening, when she returns home after a long night on duty, Amel realizes her husband, a journalist, has disappeared. Confronted by the indifference and inertia of the authorities, she decides to set out to find him. She’s accompanied by Khadidia, a dynamic and defiant nurse, who stood out among the ranks fighting for independence when she was younger.
    During their uncertain and dangerous journey, the two women learn more about each other while also confronting the men of their country.
