This intense drama focuses on Brahim Nadhour, a Tunisian who has been living in France for several years and returns to his home country to bury his son, Marouane, who was killed in a motorcycle accident. Devastated by the death and shocked to see how things have changed since the Arab Spring, Brahim discovers that Marouane was active in a radical Islamist group and a fatwa has been declared on his own ex-wife, Loubna. The film explores the complex process of radicalization in a society and its profound effects on individuals and families.
