It is 1995. In a district in the suburbs of Algiers, 12-year-olds Samia and Nouara enjoy a happy friendship until violence suddenly appears in their life and tests their bond. With a background in documentaries, Amal Blidi creates an intense first fictional short film that uses the prism of adolescence to sensitively allude to the “Black Decade” and the end of innocence.
