2019/ Tunisia - France120 min/ Drama
Following the death of his mother, “S”, a young Tunisian soldier, is granted a one-week leave to pay a visit to his homeland. Instead of returning to the army, he absconds and soon becomes the target of a manhunt. Seriously injured after a few altercations with the police, "S" resorts to the forest, where he meets "F", a young impregnated woman who mysteriously abandons her luxurious lifestyle and seeks solitude in the forest. The paths of the two intersect and they establish a one-of-a-kind bond.
