The story revolves around an Algerian family destroyed by the war. There are three characters : the father, the mother and their son. The father is killed during a bombardment by the French air force. The son, until then a supplier for the resistant party, is now living a double life : during the day, he attends to domestic work, at night; he travels the mountains in order to give munitions to the resistant members of the Army for the National Liberation. But, one night, he is arrested by the colonial troops. The family home is ransacked by the soldiers. The mother leaves fearlessly from camp to camp, looking for her son. One day, she arrives to a city barricaded by barbed wire and shiny sheet metal. Pushed by maternal instinct, she begins furiously turning in circles in the middle of a great plain to find her son, until one day, after endless days and hours of vain searching... a miracle happens.
