Enthusiastic young thirty year old, both funny and violent, Yacine lives in a caravan, on the margins of reality, gets by with little jobs. Attracted by the unknown man but without flowing with it, he one day meets a woman who looks like him. And so reappears in among people he had so carefully avoided: Djibril, a childhood friend from the city, then his Algerian family headed by his, formerly in the FLN converted to Catholicism. This community brings back easily to the surface memories of exclusion, desire for recognition, boyhood frustration, and, in order to move forward, Yacine will have to rid himself of it forever and take-off.

Yacine è un giovane parigino di origini algerine che vive in una roulotte, cercando invano di dare un senso alla propria vita. Figure sfuggenti affollano la sua esistenza, lo portano a evocare continuamente il passato in un caleidoscopio di eventi e personaggi. Un naufragio emotivo alla ricerca delle proprie radici, un'inquietudine esistenziale che non riesce ad appagarsi. All'improvviso un miraggio, una meta chiara e raggiungibile: Toledo. E la città andalusa gli mostrerà la verità su se stesso. L'autore di L'Afrance propone un nuovo film sulla condizione del meticcio, dell'immigrato che recide i legami con le proprie radici e affronta il dramma della quotidianità in una terra straniera.

Il film è stato presentato alle Giornate degli Autori della 64ma Mostra del Cinema di Venezia.
