Tunisia, summer 2011. The holiday to the South of the country ends in disaster for Fares, Meriem and their 10-year-old son Aziz, when he is accidentally shot in an ambush. His injury will change their lives: Aziz needs a liver transplant, which leads to discovery of a long-buried secret. Will Aziz and the relationship survive?
„I live in a patriarchal society based on Muslim-Arab values, deeply entrenched in ways that hold the Father as sacred. These values sometimes confine paternity to a blood relationship, a surname, a genetic sequence. A Son is not just a film about fatherhood; it’s also a film about a couple, their place in society, and also about empowerment – both feminine and masculine.”
