In Algiers, I meet Nassima Hablal, a forgotten heroine of the Algerian Revolution. Like a grandmother with her granddaughter, she tells me her story of a woman in the war, her fight for an independent Algeria. Cheerful, charming and ironical, the old lady takes me to meet her friends of days gone: Baya, a nurse in the maquis and Nelly, a social worker in shanty-towns. Through her accounts, I reconstruct a part of my own history. Every year I come back to visit her.
