Après avoir exercé en France, Selma, 35 ans, ouvre son cabinet de psychanalyse dans une banlieue populaire de Tunis. Au lendemain de la Révolution, la demande s'avère importante dans ce pays « schizophrène ». Mais entre ceux qui prennent Freud et sa barbe pour un frère musulman et ceux qui confondent séances tarifées avec "prestations tarifées", les débuts du cabinet sont mouvementés… Alors que Selma commence enfin à trouver ses marques, elle découvre qu'il lui manque une autorisation indispensable pour continuer d'exercer…

Le code de visionnage sera envoyé la veille.

After 10 years of living in Paris, Selma has returned to Tunis. Back home, her younger cousin can't figure out why she'd leave the French capital, her aunt is overbearing, and her uncle is only giving her a matter of weeks to crash in the apartment above their house. Selma, nonetheless, is steadfast in her resolve: she wants to open up a psychotherapy practice. So begins the first feature directed and written by Manele Labidi, an incisive comedy about coming home, breaking taboos, and building community. As Selma tries to settle in, she's faced with increasing complications that she couldn't have predicted. There isn't just the matter of finding interested psychotherapy patients in a locale that's not keen on the talking cure, but she also needs to navigate a confusing bureaucratic circus in order to get the right papers to run her practice. On top of all that, a strapping cop, Naim, is keeping a close eye on her every move. 

The screening link will be sent the day before.
