Hassan, a political prisoner finds freedom after serving an 18-year sentence in atrocious conditions. Once free, the only idea he has in mind, is to take revenge on JALAL, a former soldier now retired and whom he considers responsible for the torture he suffered during his years of detention. Hassan chooses to execute his plan when Jalal is travelling to southern Morocco with his wife and two children. They will be held hostage by Hassan and taken to an old cemetery where his companions in misfortune rest. Hassan will, however, be forced to reconsider his plans when the youngest child suffering from diabetes gets in crisis and needs urgent medical care …A journey that swings between fear, violence, forgiveness and reconciliation.
