TALIEN

by Elia Mouatamid

synopsis

After spending almost forty years in Italy, Abdelouahab (Aldo) decides to return home, to Morocco. Ilyass (Elia), his son who is now thirty-four years old, grew up in Lombardy but joins him on this journey of memories and stories. After years of sacrifice, the two manage to transform an old military truck into a camper: in January 2016 the camper is finally ready and Aldo wants to leave. The trip is an opportunity to explain themselves, to understand each other, to encounter each other. To understand the power of a bond at the moment of taking their leave. Immigration is the background of the story of their relationship during a journey which will take them to Morocco, by way of France and Spain.
