SYNOPSIS

Amra and Lyes are two young Algerians who have been living in France for five years. Amra has begun the process to legalize her immigrant status, whereas Lyes is still an illegal immigrant. One evening, as she searches for her cell phone while driving, Amra runs over a pedestrian. She didn’t see anything happen. Amra is desperate and doesn’t know what to do when a young woman, Angelique, suddenly appears and clears her of any blame, claiming that the pedestrian threw himself under the car. The two young women become friends. But over time, Angelique’s behavior grows increasingly strange; indeed, rather disturbing…
