In January 2019 filmmaker Karim Aïnouz (The Invisible Life, “Kino Pavasaris”) decides to take a boat, cross the Mediterranean and embark on his first journey to Algeria. Accompanied by the memory of his mother, Iracema, and his camera, Aïnouz gives us a detailed account of the journey to his father's homeland. We follow him as he crosses the sea, arrives to the Atlas Mountains in Kabylia, and returns. Present, past and future poetically interweaves in the film.

"The cinema of Aïnouz is not only poetry – it’s a journey and relief for rushing, thought-stricken heads. I urge you to indulge into the hands of this fantastic guide. Although this guide himself travels to lands the first time, he has a blood-coded intuition to look exactly where the cultural accents of the place and the history of the 20th century come to the fore.” (Aistė Račaitytė)
