Nadia El Fani’s pre-Jasmin Revolution espionage fable follows our hero Kalt as she hijacks the airwaves to broadcast political messages from a remote mountain village in Tunisia.
Things quickly turn into a sexually charged cat-and-mouse game between Kalt and French intelligence officer Julia as they struggle with oppositional missions. Brimming with queer and revolutionary potential Bedwin Hacker is keenly critical of the security apparatus of the French state and how this is used to target immigrant communities.
