An African high school teacher (Eriq Ebouaney) flees his war-torn country, Central African Republic, for France, where he falls in love with a French woman who offers a roof for him and his two children. The story of intimate lives scarred by national borders is the story of our time, told in this film by Mahamat-Saleh Haroun with enormous empathy and great urgency. The film shows us a glimpse of contemporary sacrifice, of millions of uprooted lives on hold, simmering and suffering.

In French with English subtitles.
