A father, mother, daughter and son sit down to eat. Animated by their impulses, this family theatre becomes a sometimes tragic play. The son’s emancipation and rebellion triggers tensions. Kader Belarbi seeks to X-ray the complex family ties that are often revealed paroxysmally during traditional family meals.

Room is a parcel of privileged space between women and men.

According to the impact of objects which interfere with them,

they trace the intimate places of their encounter.

From a fragment of a poem by Louis Aragon :

“A beautiful evening, the future is called the past, 

it is then that we turn back and see our youth“.

 

Four unconventional characters are prisoners of their remembrance. They meet and travel in their memory.
