Djemila finally gets the right to leave her parents’ home to settle alone in a new apartment nearby. She is succesfully assimilated and the perfect executive. She erases her Algerian origins as much as possible. Emma, her french next-door neighbor, a young widow, struggles to raise her two kids alone, playing hide and seek with bailiffs. The encounter between the two women who are totally different, is electric. But the love of music ends up building a strong friendship that will lead them both to overcome their inner contradictions. Each will find entitlement for moving forwards to a fulfilling life.
