Tunis, summer of 2010. A few months before the revolution, Farah turns 18. She joins a politically-engaged band of musicians, and discovers freedom and love against her mother Hayet’s will, who is more conscious of Tunisia and its taboos. The two women are opposed in a conflict. When Farah finally sets free, it is only to end up in the hands of the state police.
