Selma, 17, lives in a bourgeois and secular Berber family. When she
meets Julien, a provocative young man, she realis for the first time
how the heavy rules of patriarchy affect her intimacy. As she faces
her own fears to explore the power and dangers of her desire, her
family crumbles and the terror of fundamentalism emerges in her
country of origin. Selma must fight back to reclaim her body and
become a free woman.
The film has
