Algeria, February 2019. A popular pacifist uprising erupts against the candidacy of president Bouteflika for a 5th term, steadily swelling into a revolution. Shot on the 8th of March 2019, International Women’s Day, the film draws a vibrant portrait of a young woman as she joins thousands of protesters in the streets of Algiers, fighting to overthrow a regime that has silenced them for decades. Αs we follow her trailing along her country’s march towards a brighter future, our heart starts beating to the pulse of the roaming streets.
