Film Description:
"The 2011 Tunisian Revolution has left its mark on a small fishing village. A young woman must confront this fact when she returns to her childhood home. Her grandfather, deep in the coils of Alzheimer's, cannot remember his own family, much less the events that have shaken and scarred his country. The story is suffused with longing for the distant past and faded memories."
