After more than thirty years of living in a small, French town, an Algerian Couple--Aya and Moncef--are revisited by an old friend, Amin, who was the old FLN leader of the War for Independence. His return evokes the story of Aya and Moncef's role in the revolution, told through flashbacks of Aya's and how she came to find a certain type of independence within herself.
