Rachid Bouchareb writes and directs this sequel to his 2007 political drama 'Days of Glory'. Set against the backdrop of the Algerian struggle for independence from France after the Second World War, the drama follows three brothers who become separated during the massacre at Setif. Messaoud (Roschdy Zem) joins the French army and goes off to fight in Indochina. Said (Jamel Debbouze) takes his mother to live in the shanty town at Pigalle in France, where he becomes a street hustler and boxing promoter. Meanwhile, resistance fighter Abdelkadan (Sami Bouajila) is imprisoned for his political beliefs. Eventually the brothers are reunited in Paris, where they find that freedom is still something they all have to fight for.
