Synopsis

Lila is a woman returning to Algeria fifteen years after the end of the war for independence--a war that shaped her childhood and gave her lingering, inescapable memories. In Algeria, she forges new connections with Algerian women who share with her their traditions, their strength, their experience, and their resistance.
