In a Parisian taxi, a man learns from a Moroccan fortune-teller that his sister is about to die. In an attempt to alter the prediction, the brother embarks on a fictional journey between Morocco, Israel and Paris. Based on family archives and excerpts from the trilogy created by Ronit and Shlomi Elkabetz - CAHIERS NOIRS: VIVIANE and CAHIERS NOIRS: RONIT, invite us into the intimacy of a Jewish-Arab family, a family of uprooted exiles, in an imaginary story where a brother and sister revisit the past and the present to defy an implacable future. But the prophecy still shadows them, as in life, so in cinema.
