In 2007 Tunisia, youth anger is escalating with speeches of protest echoing, whether through head-on politics or through music and rap. Strolling in the alleys of Sidi Fathallah, a working-class neighborhood in the Southern suburbs of Tunis, we discover this reality that screams the truth about the Tunisia of the time. These same lanes take us a decade later to meet a new generation, ten years and a revolution later. These young people are now in their thirties. What is their take on all these changes? What have become of their dreams? What have they done with the acquired freedom of expression? Have our young musicians been saved by their art? What consequences did their art have on their lives, and vice versa? Did these young people, the "children of Ben Ali", achieve their goals after "killing the father"? The destinies of five young people, a district and a decade, embark us on a journey, taking us back and forth between 2007 and 2017. From dictatorship to democracy, how have five young people, from a working-class neighborhood in the Southern suburbs of Tunis, lived and made history?
