France | 2016 | 18’


It is early morning, back from a fishing trip. Lounes comes along with a jerrican of petrol in his hand. Right there, in the middle of the shacks, he’s going to try to set himself alight. Up in the surrounding mountains, Rachid, a clandestine cab driver, is taking Ounissa, a young village girl to Tizi-Ouzou-sur-mer, along with a huge frozen fish. Quick! It’s getting hot already this morning, the countdown’s begun. In the evening, as our fish has reached the shore at last… Miracle! It’s coming...
