Le détachement

This is the story of Amina, a married Tunisian woman who veils her deepest identity to meet social demands and escape her own past. She is the wife, the mother and the adulterer too... or maybe only the Woman in search of her truth in a chaos of socio-religious stereotypes. Caught by the disease of the century, she is on the verge of alienation when she finally decides to face her "demons" and remedy her situation... The revolutionary upheaval of 2011, like her identity crisis, may pave the way to her liberation. Amina's story is a crossing to the human in an ocean of unspoken and mysteries...
