After losing their family home in Algeria in the 1920s, three brothers
and their mother are scattered across the globe. Messaoud joins the
French army fighting in Indochina; Abdelkader becomes a leader of the
Algerian independence movement in France and Saïd moves to Paris to make
his fortune in the shady clubs and boxing halls of Pigalle. Gradually,
their interconnecting destinies reunite them in the French capital,
where freedom is a battle to be fought and won.
