The Photograph-Women are gathered in front of the Ministry of the Interior and the Italian Embassy in Tunis. They are holding photographs of their sons, husbands and brothers. All of them have disappeared while emigrating by boat to Europe during the Arab Spring. Among these women is Om El Khir Ouirtani. The film follows her private and public life as mother of three and member of the association La Terre Pour Tous, as she strives to find what happened to her husband and take care of her family.
