Three stories, each illustrating a different facet of Algeria – between slums and luxury apartments, rural expanses and urban moloch, the traditional and the modern. A young woman travels to her wedding with an elderly man and shares an intimate secret with the driver. The civil war of the 1990s suddenly catches up with an ambitious neurosurgeon. And a wealthy property developer witnesses a brutal beating and does nothing. Emotional and fascinating, Until The Birds Return
paints a picture of a country in search of stability, of upheaval, of itself.
