Ouled Allal is an area ravaged by war during the nineties in Algeria. A constellation of beings, voices, bodies, and buildings face the test of time and live the scars of a slow war without fronts. In his debut feature film Djamel Kerkar remembers a dark epoche of Algeria. Among the ruins, memory travels; images and sounds draw a poetic map and a psycho-geographical exploration of the place.
