Anissa Daoud / Short Narrative / Tunisia, France, Qatar / 2019 / 25 min / Original Language: Arabic / Interests: Drama, Family


When his wife leaves on a business trip, Imed must take care of his 5-year-old son, Hedi, for the first time on his own. While his wife has always taken care of their child’s daily needs, Imed ends up enjoying this privileged time with his son, even after showing a little resistance. However, this common and simple event in a family’s life unearths dark memories from Imed’s past. Little by little, Imed is paralysed with anguish from the most trivial moments, forcing him to lead an unceasing double struggle—against his resurging fears and dire need to hide his turmoil from everyone and especially young Hedi.
