A peasant mother (Keltoum) whose husband was killed in an attack by the French Army watches as her son (Mohamed Chouikh) is arrested and charged with being a rebel collaborator. She searches for her son and finds that he is being held prisoner at a detention camp. The faithful mother watches her son each day from beyond the electrically charged wire fence that surrounds the facility. When she does not see him one day, she assumes the worst and contemplates suicide by electrocution in this grim war drama.
