Le Nouveau Port is the last bar in a neighborhood that will soon be demolished to make way for a expanding city. While Nico, a former soft porn actress, continues to elude creditors, her children await her at Le Nouveau Port, experiencing the final days of the neighborhood.
Tuarith, the last working-class neighborhood near a rapidly expanding city. One night, after years of absence, Nico, a former soft
porn actress, arrives here dragging along her two children, Irene and Iman, and seeks refuge with Sunil, the children’s father. Despite
being unsettled by the woman’s return, Sunil welcomes them into
the small apartment he shares with some compatriots. Nico is pursued by mysterious creditors, so she leaves the children with Sunil and hides in the heart of the burgeoning city. Irene and Iman await their mother’s return, spending their time exploring the neighborhood, which will soon be demolished to make way for the city’s expansion. One place remains, Le Nouveau Port, a timeless bar where Sunil and his friends gather in nostalgia for times past. Nico wanders the streets of the developing city. Shadows move around her. In a construction worker’s cinema, she stumbles upon a film in which she acted some time ago. Perhaps chased by creditors, perhaps haunted by her ghosts, the woman must confront a whirlwind where her lies blend with tragic truth. The city advances, and as the children realize the neighborhood will soon be engulfed, they decide to follow their mother’s footsteps.
