    • Synopsis
    • Algiers, the winter of 2003. Three women, a mother, her daughter and a prostitute have been living in a hotel in the centre of town since the start of the violence.
      Goucem, the daughter, has made an emancipated life for herself, working for a photographer, taking a generous, married lover and spending steamy weekends in nightclubs.
      Fifi, her faithful friend, prostitutes herself, under the thumb of a powerful and "kind" protector.
      Papicha, the mother, eats pizzas in front of the TV, torn between fear and the nostalgia of her former fame as a cabaret dancer.
      And even if death is constantly and insidiously at their doorstep, they resolutely refuse to give up the fight!
