August 2010: Tunisia is still under Ben Ali’s régime. Despite censorship, Nadia El Fani films a country which seems liberal towards Islam… Three months later, the Tunisian Revolution breaks out, Nadia is out in the field. While the Arab World enters an era of radical change, Tunisia, which initiated the wind of revolt, is once again a “laboratory country” for its outlook on religion. And what if, by the will of the people, a Muslim country opted for a secular constitution? Then, Tunisians would really have made Revolution.
