BEHIND THE SUN

Synopsis

“Tunisia. A word I have trouble articulating, when I want to tell it to my son.”

Dhia, 29 years old, left Tunisia after having taken part in the Revolution. Exiled to France, he’s worried about transmitting his stuttering to Elia, his two year old son. Soon, the issue isn’t managing a fluent speech so much as figuring how to talk to Elia about Tunisia.
