Amel and her teenage son Moumen dream of his future as a goalkeeper for a famous soccer team. But everything turns out differently. After allegedly committing adultery, Amel has to spend six months in prison. When she is released, Moumen has disappeared. Amel desperately searches for her son, whose tracks lead her into the Tunisian capital's nocturnal underworld. As a single woman, she encounters the darkest recesses of a society out of control. Director Mehdi Hmili's social drama excels with its captivating camerawork and the way it skilfully switches perspective between mother and son.
