Synopsis

Slimane and Moha are two young Imazighen immigrants. When they reach adulthood, they are forced to leave the child care center for foreigners, which has been their home until then.
Homeless, without a fixed place to turn to or to shelter in, days go by without too much to do, but mixing with the group, searching for money and work, playing football or escaping from the police. Time goes by in such a different manner for them, endless…

A steady relationship, without duplicities or raised expectations, is forging between these characters. But the relationship staggers when an unfortunate fact puts these young men in an extreme situation.
