It is Sidi, her great-grandfather who settled there after having been expelled from his village in 1948. One day, Sidi entrusts her with the key of his former house in Galilee.

UN HOMME EST MORT
Brest, 1950. The working class is being exploited for the post-world war 2 reconstruction effort. Labour unions decide to go on strike to demand better salaries. During a demonstration, the police shoots at the crowd and kills Edouard Mazé, one of the demonstrators. A filmmaker, René Vautier, is summoned by the Labour unions to make a film about the strikes and the workers’ conditions. The film is shown across the region accompanied by Paul Eluard’s poem “A Man is Dead”.
