After 62 years of living together, Aïcha and
Mabrouk, Lina’s grandparents, have decided to
separate. Together, they came from Algeria to
Thiers, a small medieval town in the middle of
France, over 60 years ago. Side by side, they have
experienced this chaotic immigrant life. For Lina,
their separation is an opportunity to question their
long journey of exile and their silence.
