Event description

Description

In the fourth feature from acclaimed Tunisian director Raja Amari (Satin Rouge), a young illegal immigrant creates a new life for herself in France while becoming the centre of tangled romantic relationships.

Seeking refuge from her radical Islamist brother in the wake of the Tunisian Revolution, Samia arrives in Lyon after a perilous journey across the Mediterranean.

In need of work and shelter, and with the help of a long-time friend of her jailed brother, Samia finds employment with the wealthy and recently widowed Madame Berteau. Before long, the boundaries between the two women begin to blur, as their connection evolves into a complex romantic infatuation.
