Synopsis:

Sarah, 17, of Algerian origin, lives alone with her father Karim. For the past couple of months, she has had a secret love affair with her best friend's brother, Mashir, 22, of Pakistani origin.

Following a work accident, Mashir's uncle comes to live in the neighbourhood with his wife and his daughter, which he now wants to marry off. Barely arrived, he sees Mashir as the ideal son-in-law. And faced with the determination of this fragile man, nobody dares criticise his idea.

Despite the love he has for Sarah, Mashir is unable to openly oppose his uncle and risk disappointing his family. The noose is tightening around their relationship and Mashir's fate seems sealed. Sarah, in a last-ditch attempt to save the one she loves, will break taboos and violently disrupt the lives of those around her.
