On January 17, 2011, Tunisian President Ben Ali was overthrown by a popular uprising. The Arab Spring was just beginning, and hope was spreading throughout Tunisia – the only country that would know a true democratic transition in four years.

From Zarzis harbour to the city of Sidi-Bouzid, from Djerba island to the Algerian border, this documentary encounters those that Tunisia has forgotten.
