Aicha married Nour in 1962, the year of Algerian independence. Later, Nour went to work in France among those against whom he had previously fought. At the beginning of his exile, Nour returned to his homeland every summer, but over the years his returns became less frequent. Meanwhile, Aicha and Nour’s children grew up and had children in their turn. Not having heard from Nour in years, Aicha decides to leave her village for the first time. She crosses Algeria and finally reaches Paris, where she searches diligently for her husband. The man she finds is no longer the Nour she once knew. So begins their rediscovery of one another in the face of the love that still binds them.
