SOFIA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL 2010: Region Friuli Venezia Giulia presents
A Tunisian man of humble origins, Mehdi's memories of his youth are dominated by the heavy wooden door at his beloved's father's house, closing in his face, symbolising his seperation from her. His heart scarred, Mehdi went to Europe to try and make something of himself. Returning, older, wiser and wealthier, he decides to achieve closure on his traumatic past by confronting and destroying the door, in a bid to free himself of its awful shadow on his heart. But the door proves resistant to Mehdi's increasingly desperate attempts to destroy it… A meditative and profound parable on the redemptive powers of the human spirit...
