Tunis, summer 2010, a few months before the Revolution: Farah, 18 years-old, has just graduated and her family already sees her as a future doctor. But she doesn't think the same way. She sings in a political rock band. She has a passion for life, gets drunk, discovers love and her city by night against the will of her mother Hayet, who knows Tunisia and its dangers too well.
This is terrible film actually about nothing at all. What we got here is an ugly young girl who thought she got singing talent and wanted to stick with a bunch of yoyos who put together a terrible band and she's the leading singer. My God, what a lousy voice she got? Almost a tune deaf. The songs she sang in this film were so ear-sore and the stupid screenplay even made her sing one of the lousy songs twice in some night club and everybody applauded for her terrible singing. Jesus, what a joke! There's nothing special about this movie, just a brainless stupid young woman dreaming about having a singing career in Tunisia. Were those Tunisians tone-deaf? The band actually was better than her singing. A stupid young girl was so wild and out of control of herself until was threatened by the plain-cloth cops. There was nothing to see in this stupid film, just wasting your time. We sat there with patience, wished something would have finally turned out, but what we got in the end was a big NADA!
