« Burning Hope » is at once the story of an unlikely friendship and the portrait of a fragile country haunted by so many ghosts. Between investigation and intimate story, the movie tells the crossed destinies of two young women and a teenager in a post-revolution Tunisia, swinging between hopes and desillusions.
