The lives of three siblings are upended hours after their youngest brother tragically passes away mysteriously (after an alleged incident with the cops). Abdel, a French soldier, returns from the front lines to find his family ripped apart. He has torn between his older brother Moktar’s illegal activities and his younger brother Karim’s desire for vengeance.
Their community, Athena, comes under attack as Abdel tries to defuse the escalating tensions; as a result, tragedy strikes the family and everyone around them. The boy’s three elder brothers are at the center of the community’s all-out battle that results from their brother’s passing.
