In the mountains of Algeria, Islamist groups continue to spread terror. Rashid, a young Jihadist, takes advantage of a national amnesty to rejoin civil society. In keeping with the law “of pardon and national harmony,” he must surrender to the police and give up his weapon. Those who do so are known as “repentants.” But the law can’t erase his crimes. For Rashid, it is the beginning of a journey of violence, secrets and manipulation, especially when he crosses paths with a separated couple whose lives were destroyed five years earlier.
