A kaleidoscopic journey through the streets of Algiers in Hocine Filali’s ramshackle taxi. Hocine is a dreamer. An amateur photographer whose skills are well known from the alleys of the Casbah to the big boulevards downtown, it seems that everyone knows who he is. And for a good story, or a nice bottle of Italian wine, Hocine will take the most amazing portrait for you to hang proudly on your wall. With dreams of setting sail for a better life in Italy, he will first have to break free from the spell of this gritty magical city and its colorful cast of characters.
