Morning, a small city in Algeria where a free runner practices.
Sonia, 45, singer, prepares to go perform at a wedding party in a small city in Algeria. Kamel, 35, her husband and manager is not in a good mood today. Sonia and Kamel work together but their private relationship is over. Around 9 am, they take the road toward the marriage hall.
Salima, 30, is insomniac since a few years so she gets late to the marriage hall kitchen’s where she gives a hand. And this morning was even worse because there were no public transportations. The old cook berates her for bringing her daughter Nedjma with her as well. But Salima as a single mother (unmarried) has no one to
take care of her daughter. The old cook knows everything about Salima’s situation so she doesn’t insist.
Kamila, 25, the bride, feels nostalgic about her youth. She spent hours wrapping her things and offered her books and university notes to female students during the day. Her mother is upset because Kamila looses time with nonsense problems.
