Amani is haunted by the past. Riziki avoids talking about it while she is now living with Raphaël. More passionate about art than his studies, Amani gives them up and drifts away.

Yet, his resentment turns against him, against the young woman he desires, and ends up hindering his new friends’ business. Will he and his mother find the force and the courage to overcome their problems?
