Tunis, summer 2010, a few months before the Revolution: Farah, 18 years-old, has just graduated high school and her family already sees her as a future doctor. But she doesn’t think the same way. She sings in a political rock band. She has a passion for life, gets drunk, discovers love and her city by night against the will of her mother Hayet, who knows Tunisia and its dangers too well. “Best fiction film yet about the Arab Spring.” (indieWIRE)
