On a feverish night, a child perceives a ghost: a woman from the sea coming home after a long political exile. Silent tales, disembodied voices and visions mingle in the feverish dark.


Safia Benhaim (1977) is the daughter of Moroccan political refugees and lives and works in France. Her films explore question of exile and the strange territories between documentary and science fiction.
