★★★★ "An outstanding piece of filmmaking" - The Australian. 

Tunisia, summer 2011. A holiday to the southern country ends in disaster for Fares, Meriem and their 10-year old son Aziz when he is accidentally shot in an ambush. His injury will change their lives - Aziz needs a liver transplant, which leads to the discovery of a long-buried secret. Will Aziz and their relationship survive?

"It's a film reminiscent of the work of Iranian master Asghar Farhadi, full of twists and turns as it puts its characters in increasingly tragic situations." - Cineuropa

"The evenhanded way in which the script gives equal space to husband and wife is one of the film’s chief satisfactions, and both actors inhabit their roles with a gripping degree of authenticity" - Variety

"
Barsaoui has a bright future ahead of him as a director of dramas that expertly capture complex human emotions within their socio-cultural, historical and political context." - The Hollywood Reporter
