Through the hubbub of a revolution, Ya man aach follows Aida, a Tunisian woman who has to rebuild her entire life and who does not wish to look back. She spends her time moving from one poor neighbourhood to another. Driven by the will to find a roof over her head and for her children, she takes no notice of the historical events taking place around her. Her only goal is to find a way out, and she is convinced that the revolution is a blessing. Ya man aach shows the atypical journey of this brazen and bold woman in the intense interval of a country’s revolution.
