Nessim, a surgeon who came to Strasbourg... They don't know each other. The exile is the only thing that they have in common. The voice and the memory of the narrator brought them together. "Borhane Alaouie is a topographer, he films the places. Like all of the people who chose to live elsewhere, he knows what a place means, to frame as much as to dream, to fly as much as to film." Serge Daney, about the film Beyrouth la rencontre in "Libération".
