El Medestansi (The disqualified)

This is the story of twelve years of Mahrez's life. Mahrez is 36 years old, a rebellious man from Mohammedia (Tunisia), and a horse racing gambler. The film spans through twelve years of hopes, failures, anger, dreams and disappointment. Interrupted studies, aborted experiences in Europe, unemployment, prison, artistic attempts, are all memories knocking into each other, as are many pieces of a broken mirror, telling a medestansi life, a disqualified life.
