Fifteen-year-old Kenza and her thirteen-year-old brother Mahdi’s favourite pastime is humiliating each other on social media. They are quite cruel at it too. One day, while riding the bus, Kenza decides to test her naive and romantic younger brother. She challenges him to declare love to his crush Jadi who is not even aware of Mahdi’s existence. Under pressure from his older sister, Mahdi agrees. The film was screened in official competitions at festivals in Cannes and Warsaw.
