The heart of Algiers, the Winter of 2003. Three women: a mother, her daughter and a prostitute have been living in a hotel in the centre of town amid creeping fundamentalism. Goucem, the daughter, has chosen a modern, emancipated life for herself by working for a photographer and spending steamy weekends in nightclubs. Fifi, her faithful friend, prostitutes herself under the thumb of a local protector. Papicha, the mother, eats pizzas in front of the television, torn between fear and nostalgia. Director Nadir Nadir MoknEche, known in Europe as the "Algerian Almodovar," weaves a richly drawn portrait of women exiled in their own country.
