In this French drama, the French-born son of North African immigrants attempts to cope with his guilt after he accidentally causes a family tragedy. The tale begins as 25-year old Ismael and his teenage brother Mouloud drive into Marseille where they plan on visiting relatives before heading back to their native North African country to join their parents. Both young men consider themselves French rather than North African, and Mouloud has vowed that he will not go back to the desert. Their colorful relatives, most particularly their iron-willed aunt, help teach the fellows important lessons about life and the nature of friendship and self-accountability. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
