My brother and I have a mother born in Algeria. Akice, one of my brother friend, has her grand father Harki (muslim involved with France during the independance war). I want to film those two characters to catch the Story the have inside. Also because they have an algerian past : they both built an image of this land without knowing it for real. I capture their imaginaries in france and their first trip to Alger. This movie looks for different pieces of a puzzle to represent the link that we have with the past and with the place where our parents were born.
