SYNOPSIS

Allegra is a lively young woman with a passion for high mountain climbing. She decides to travel to Morocco to reach the top of the Atlas, but her trip ends ab- ruptly when a man explodes a bomb in a coffee shop and her three friends die in the attack. Unable to overcome the trauma months later she returns to her city, where the encounter with Arad, young refugee from the Middle East, forces her to confront her perception of reality, her fears and heal her profound interior wounds.
