A mother and her daughter explore together four generations of women from the same family, an Egyptian family, originally from the Levant, a family where life and cinema have always been, and continue to be, intrinsically linked. This is an intimate story between personal archival footages where reality and fiction interplay and the autobiographical films of Youssef Chahine. From Alexandria to Cairo, passing by Paris and Havana, a mother and daughter take us on a personal journey, both visceral and visual, as they question their emotions and destinies.
