for its audacity in shooting, out of the box, a docu-fiction about youth, struggling to exist in a town rarely portrayed in cinema: Alexandria.

The new generation of artists and musicians in Alexandria and their complex lives. Khaled returns home after several years in the USA, he has lost his emotional bearings and ends up wandering around the city where he discovers a new family, the family of underground art, hip hop music on the pavements, girls' rock bands on terraces, writers who bring the night to life and independent video-makers in the streets. His guide in this parallel world is Yacine, a young skater. Khaled is fascinated by it all and decides to help the movement organize a big concert, despite a thousand difficulties.
