Under the Fig Trees

A group of teenagers spend their summer working in the fig harvest in rural northwest Tunisia. Melek and her friends work in the orchards during the summer to pay for their studies, prepare for their weddings or help their families. Between the fig trees, under the gaze of older workers and young men, they reveal and project themselves, on the threshold of an adult life. The fig orchard becomes a real theater of emotions, where their relationships with work, love, friendship and the land are played out.
