In 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. Karim Moussaoui’s debut film follows three stories that plunge us into the human soul of a contemporary Arab society. Selected for the “Un Certain Regard” sidebar at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. Director Karim Moussaoui in attendance!
