In 1948, four eight-year-old cousins disembark in Marseille from Kabylie to continue their education. During fourteen years and the entire Algerian War, they grew up in metropolitan France, separated from their families. Everything shifted in 1962. Three of them returned to live in the newly free Algeria, the fourth chose the values of the Republic. He was to become Azdine the Frenchman. But what is hiding behind this "successful" integration? What is the cost of this "assimilation" in the host country? The director suggests, accompanying her uncle, to visit the places that encouraged his integration in France and she also decides to go alone to Algeria to seek out those cousins.
