Hervé is an assembly-line worker whose years of service count for little when his employer shutters its shoe factory in northern France. Hervé uses his severance pay to pursue his love for fishing, but his attempts to turn his hobby into a vocation run afoul of the local authorities. While this is going on, the shoe factory is reassembled across the Mediterranean in a Tunisian suburb, where Foued takes a low-paying job in questionable conditions, forging ahead in the hope of a promotion and a romance with his coworker Karima. Both soon make the discovery that the word “mobility” means different things for people of differing circumstance. Join AFA Ciné-club at the AFS Cinema for this 2017 drama directed by Walid Mattar on Sunday January 20th at 1:00pm. 89 Minutes, French & Arabic with English subtitles.
