Directed by Mehdi Charef, 2001.

A young woman, Rallia, raised in Switzerland, travels to an isolated Berber settlement located in the Atlas Mountains of Algeria. Rallia’s journey is one of multi-tiered discovery in terms of her relationship to her extended family, traditional Berber culture and her desperate need to locate her biological mother.

Charef captures windswept vistas of a faraway mountain range with wide camera angles that frame the harsh environs and the desperate daily search for water, the responsibility of the resilient women of the Berber tribe.
