Dictatorship! Revolution! And then... ?
The stories, fears and hopes of two Tunisians reflect the massive changes within a society on the threshold of democracy. After 24 years of dictatorship the two Tunisians Soukaina and Beshir must find a new sense of direction. While the idealistic student Soukaina is fighting for democracy as a party candidate, the life-experienced and disillusioned waiter Beshir is struggling for the future of his family. The documentary portrays a very personal and momentary description of Tunisia in October 2011, the month of the first free elections in the history of this country.
