    • Synopsis
    • Like hundreds of illegal immigrants, Samia lands on European shores. Haunted by the fear of being followed by her Islamist brother whom she had denounced to the authorities.
      Samia first finds refuge at Imed’s home, a former acquaintance from her village, before ending up working for the rich widow Leila. These new meetings mingle with her headlong flight where desire enhances tensions.
