Amine is a 45 years old artist, a painter whose creative drive is in crisis. While he is preparing for an exposition in the streets of Tunis, he comes across Nidal, a rebel teenager who impresses him. He decides therefore to follow him all the way to Essa¨da, in the outskirts of Tunis, where a high density of migrant populations from rural areas have settled. Nidal's father, an alcoholic makes things rough for his son who does not abey him, and who does not provide the family with money. Nidal has but one dream : to leave the country.
