Louisa, in her fifties, puts up missing person posters in search of her daughter, Souad. In a few shots, Fayçal Hammoum portrays a night of wandering through the streets of Algiers. The quest of his heroine—the magnificent Djalila Kadi Hanifi, her face lined by melancholy—underlines the profound divide between the generation of independence and the Algerian youth.
