Synopsis: After years of separation, the filmmaker is back with her mother, Aïcha, who is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. From Brussels to Tanger, between modesty and confession, the pain, the break-ups, the grief and the joys take shape: everything that has marked the odyssey of a family marked by exile.
