The protagonist encounters women across time and space, ranging from the ancient past to Tunisian liberation struggles. Baccar’s fascinating docu-fiction merges a narrative story with archival material, interview footage and reenactments of historical events.

The film is grounded on a musical score, where sound dictates the rhythm of an assemblage of audiovisual material.
