Algiers, some years after the end of the civil war: in a bourgeois quarter, Amal (Nadia Kaci) and Samir (Sami Bouajila) want to celebrate their 20th anniversary. The drive to the restaurant turns into a disillusioning journey into reality for the middle-class couple, which feels that the political ideals of their youth were betrayed. Meanwhile, their son Fahim and his friends Feriel and Reda stand before the hopelessness of a youth in a nightly Algiers, corrupted by ideology and violence, between pop culture, drugs and history. After several short stories, Sofia Djama wrote the script for her memorable debut, which premiered and was awarded at the Venice International Film Festival.
