At the graveyard of Sidi Boulekbour, the faithfuls wait for the Ziara, the time of the year when families come to visit their dead ones. For Ali, the seventy-year-old self-effacing gravedigger, this Ziara was not supposed to be different from any other. But then he meets Joher, in her sixties, who arrives to visit her sister’s grave. This is a film about rebuilding love and life.
