Tunis, summer 2010, a few months before the Revolution: Farah, 18 years-old, has just graduated and her family already sees her as a future doctor. But she doesn’t think the same way. She sings in a political rock band. She has a passion for life, gets drunk, discovers love and her city by night against the will of her mother Hayet, who knows Tunisia and its dangers too well.


Tunis, été 2010, quelques mois avant la Révolution, Farah 18 ans passe son bac et sa famille l’imagine déjà médecin… mais elle ne voit pas les choses de la même manière. Elle chante au sein d¹un groupe de rock engagé. Elle vibre, s’enivre, découvre l’amour et sa ville de nuit contre la volonté d’Hayet, sa mère, qui connaît la Tunisie et ses interdits.
