Father and son go on a fishing trip together into the mountains. When the son confesses to the father that he's gay, the situation escalates: tests of masculinity, rituals, violence, erupting feelings, speechlessness, and finally an unexpected end. Not only does the film attest to family and generational conflicts, but it positions these within an overwhelming landscape ( the Rif mountains ), which itself becomes one of the agents. Hicham Ayouch was one of six filmmakers invited to make a work by the Sharjah Biennale 10 (2011) . As they say is the result.
