Synopsis: Algiers, 2019. While Hirak is in full swing and the hope of a profound political change is blowing over Algeria, Merouane, a corrupt former minister, and Khadidja, his exuberant wife, have only one idea in mind: selling their many ill-gotten gains and leaving the country with their daughter Sarah, before justice catches up with them. But in the urgency and panic of this forced departure, each member of the family asserts himself and antagonisms multiply. Will the strong bonds that bind the family together resist?
