Every week since February 2019, millions of Algerian people are walking against the Algerian authorities. An unprecedented movement which has shaken a nation that didn’t believe in itself anymore. This documentary puts the light on how five young Algerians fight for their freedom. By telling us about their fight, they took insane risks in order to told their stories, to told us about their country. Despite the repressive measures against the hirak movement, the authoritative and military system that rules Algeria since its independence, has not consumed yet this popular and pacific movement.
