A TALE OF LOVE AND DESIRE
Ahmed, 18, French of Algerian origin, grew up in the suburbs of Paris. At the university, he meets Farah, a young Tunisian girl, full of energy, who has just arrived in the city. While discovering a corpus of sensual and erotic Arabic literature he never imagined existed, Ahmed is torn between his physical urges, his cultural values and his poetic ideas of love.
