 A 19 year-old Swiss woman travels to her birthplace – an isolated, barren Berber settlement in the mountainous desert landscape of Algeria – to find her biological mother, who she has never met. The perilous journey immerses her in a world virtually untouched by contemporary society, one that still clings to tribal mores and strict religious codes of conduct.
