Synopsis

A family weekend in southern Tunisia turns into a nightmare when a fathers entire world comes apart after his 11-year-old son is gravely injured in a terrorist shootout as is in dire need of an organ transplant.

When driving home from southern Tunisia, Fares and Meriem's car is hit by a stray bullet during an ambush by an armed group; their young son Aziz's liver is punctured. At a local hospital, the need for a transplant uncovers a secret that risks Aziz's life should a donor not be found in time. But this is only the beginning of the unexpected twists in a story so deftly crafted that it offers both a probing look at Tunisian society's anchored social and legal realities, and an unshakable need to ask yourself what you would do in the same situation.
