After 62 years of living together, Aïcha and Mabrouk, my grandparents recently separated. They now live in two separate buildings, facing each other. The film explores the longstanding journey of exile of this couple of Algerian immigrants, living in a medieval french town since over sixty years, whose lives were a succession of separations.
