    • Synopsis
    • Nordine, the son of a Moroccan miner, has grown up in Sallaumines
      in Northern France. His father wishes to be buried in his native
      village in the Atlas mountains; in order to respect the elderly
      man’s wishes, Nordine accompanies him on his final journey home,
      thereby following the path of his roots back to a country that
      he’s never known. Along the way, memories rise to the surface.
      His encounters with Mimoun, a slightly crazy man from Tangiers,
      and Nora, a young woman searching for new horizons, allow him
      to discover more about his father, about whom he knows next
      to nothing, and the palpable reality of a country that he’s only
      caught glimpses of via a few family tales.
      “Tenja” echoes like a song that has been rolling around in our
      minds since childhood but whose lyrics have only just become
      clear.
