Blurring the line between fiction and reality, this is the Oscar®-nominated story of Olfa and her four daughters against the backdrop of personal and national upheaval in Tunisia. As Olfa’s two eldest daughters disappear, having been radicalised by religious extremists, filmmaker Kaouther Ben Hania employs professional actresses to embody their roles, revealing the poignant, joyful and painful moments of their lives.

An intimate journey full of hope, rebellion, violence, intergenerational transmission and sisterhood, which will question the very foundation of our societies.
