Synopsis

A political documentary thriller based on the first ever free elections in Tunisia after the "Arab Spring" revolution, as seen through the eyes of the protagonists of this historical event. The revolution is now just an echo, as impending changes will rapidly modify the country’s society, especially as the victory of Islamic political party EnNahda becomes more and more likely. Over a one-year period the film follows the creation, development and crisis of a newly born democracy, not only reflecting on the future of the Arab Spring but also on the future of contemporary democracy itself.
