In the presence of the film crew

Two cops, Fatma and Batal, discover a burnt body in one of the lots of the Gardens of Carthage, a district of Tunis initiated by the former regime on which construction stopped at the beginning of the revolution. As construction slowly resumes, the pair start looking into the mysterious case. When the event repeats itself, the investigation takes a puzzling turn.
