Selma is an Algerian woman who leaves her small village to travel south to the Sahara, where she lives in a makeshift camp and hopes to earn a living doing housework. In the camp, she joins many other women from all around the country; among them is Noune, a woman from Paris. Noune is searching for her child who was taken by her ex-husband. One night, Selma and the other women are attacked and raped; their new lives have ended in horror. Yet Selma refuses to give up her life, and begins a long journey for justice and for recognition of the pain she has endured.
