    • A summer in Marseille. Judith, a woman of foreign origin, raises her three children alone since the murder of her husband, ten years ago. The elder one, Ismaël, is a 22 years old full of life boy. His brother, Pasko, aged 20, is way more silent. Then, Mira, 15, is a cheerful young girl despite her deafness. As there is a wedding in her family, Judith takes the decision to come back to her country with her children after eighteen years of absence. But her return revives old hatreds between rival clans.
      Unrelentingly, the spire of violence is started, blood calling blood.
