In this stirring drama set in 1962, the young widow of a veteran loses everything during the war for independence in Algeria. Help arrives in the form of a Frenchman who is leaving the country, and offers his former home to the woman and her six children. But the troubled legacy of the past proves harder to escape than hoped, when an unscrupulous government official tries to take the home away from her. Co-presented by ArteEast.
