THE REPENTANT

ALGERIA

a film by MERZAK ALLOUACHE

Algeria region of the high flatlands. As Islamist groups continue to spread terror, Rashid, a young Jihadist, leaves the mountains to return to his village. In keeping with the law « of pardon and national harmony », he has to surrender to the police and give up his weapon. He thus receives amnesty and becomes a « repenti ». But the law cannot erase his crimes and for Rachid it’s the beginning of a one-way journey of violence, secrets and manipulation.
