1x92'

Photo: DR

When Ahmed learns that he has just six months to live, he knows it is time to bid farewell to his daughter Sohela and return to his native Algeria. His boat leaves from Marseilles in three days. Sohela, born in France and a doctor herself, does not know the truth about her father’s illness. She decides to drive him from Paris to Marseille and try to convince him to stay. The roadtrip that follows is a journey of nostalgia and discovery. Ahmed and Sohela retrace the route he took when he arrived in France 30 years ago. When he finally admits to his daughter that he is dying, his whole life story comes pouring out. Sohela’s boyfriend, a Frenchman called Guillaume, rushes to meet them and ask Ahmed for his daughter’s hand in marriage. Father and daughter gain new appreciation of each other’s stories – at the moment when one is set to end and another begin.
