Algiers, the summer. In the furnace of the city,meetings with Ibrahim, Adam, Moumen and Ismael, workers comings from sub-Saharan Africa in irregular situation.


The other side of sub-Saharan immigration. Behind the statistics are the lives of people waiting to be given the chance of starting a new life somewhere else. A hotel thus becomes the point of transit where stories and hopes intermingle, in a place which seems beyond time and space. A stationary journey waiting to embark upon another.

A film by Nabil Djedouani & Hassen Ferhani

Produced by Fugues de Barbarie
