In coproduction with Les Films de l'Olivier (Algeria)
A small abandoned house, isolated in the Algerian countryside.
Here, Ouardia has buried her son Tariq, a soldier, possibly killed by his own brother Ali, leader of an Islamist faction. Ouardia is under surveillance by a member of Ali's group, a man with an arm amputated after an explosion.
In this atmosphere of pain and dryness, life will gradually reassert itself.
Through the garden that will bloom again, Ouardia shows courage, work and perseverance. Thanks to her keeper, who is a victim too, and finally adopted by Ouardia. Thanks, above all; to the arrival of Malia's child... Malia, who was loved by the two brothers, and died during her childbirth.
But Ouardia's ordeals are not about to finish: Ali, her damned son, returns, gravely wounded...
