Algeria, in the early 1990s: civil war is raging in the country. Radical militant groups try to establish an Islamist state, and those standing in their way are eliminated. Nedjima lives during this period of time. The 18-year-old studies French and is enthusiastic about fashion design. Together with her friends, she does everything ‘papichas’, pretty young girls, are not supposed to do – they have parties, wear revealing clothes and show provocative behaviour.
