    • Synopsis
    • Moussa, a young IT specialist runs a carpentry workshop. He lives with his mother, nailed on a wheelchair after the tragedy of her husband murder by the fundamentalist horde. Moussa’s dreams are buried under the weight of duty. His mother is equally afflicted by her fate and that of her son. Moussa is a relentless worker, unmerciful with himself. Many people of his generation think to leave the country and burn their wings. But when the drama is close to the absurd, the dilemma is to try to reduce the weight of the first (drama) at the risk of increasing the second (absurd) cynicism. One day in front of the sea, the two persons feeling alone in the world said what was always difficult to pronounce.
      Perhaps the worst exile is to leave one’s soul.
