Storyline

Hedi is a quiet young man following the path that has been traced out for him. Tunisia is changing, but Hedi doesn't expect much from the future and lets others make his big decisions for him. The same week his mother is preparing his marriage, his boss sends him to the seaside town of Mahdia to seek out new clients. At a crossroads, Hedi begins avoiding his professional duties and soon meets Rim, a free spirited globetrotter working as an activity leader at a local resort. Rim's lust for life quickly rubs off on Hedi and the two begin a passionate love affair. With preparations for the wedding in full swing back at home in Kairouan, Hedi is finally forced to make a choice for himself. Written by Carthage Film Festival

Where feelings are repressed prioritizing tradition
5 August 2017 | by jsinger90See all my reviews

A story of a young man immersed in a society where feelings are repressed prioritizing tradition. A place to discover the authentic, means radical break with its future scheduled by his family. Least what it appears at a time, although the end is very open to personal interpretation of the viewer.

Outstanding performance of Omnia Ben Ghali, and a plot very well developed. A high quality film.
