Kamel dreams of leaving Algeria with his girlfriend Zina and finding work in an Italian pizzeria. Zina has no papers and can only obtain them illegally. In what director Tariq Teguia describes as a slow motion road movie, the pair ambles through streets with no names and symbolic dead ends, in a war-ravaged Algeria that still offers hope.
