A magical allegory of our politically chaotic present … or perhaps just an elusive fantasy. Soldier S is given leave to attend his mother’s funeral, but he never returns to his unit. Young F learns she is pregnant and a few days later disappears into the woods. A fragile mystery about individuals who find themselves in a world not subject to the usual rules.


Synopsis

S is a young soldier serving somewhere deep in the Tunisian desert. One day he’s given leave to attend his mother’s funeral, but he never returns to the front. He is hunted as a deserter and soon flees into the mountains. F is a young woman who has just found out she’s pregnant. She too disappears into the woods without a trace… Tunisian director Ala Eddine Slim picks up on his previous film The Last of Us to once again tell a nearly wordless, mysteriously fragile tale of individuals who find themselves caught between dreams and a parallel existence in a world not subject to the usual rules. It may be a magical allegory of our politically chaotic present … or just an elusive fantasy.
