Synopsis:
In the 1960s, thousands of North Africans came to work in Belgium. Among them were women who had left everything behind to follow their men to an unknown country. “Patience, patience, you’ll go to paradise!” is what these women are repeatedly told to encourage them to put up with their lives without complaining. Fifty years on, some of them are savoring emancipation. They turn out to be incredibly fun, loving, and capable of uninhibited self-mockery. This film follows them as they make new discoveries, through the simplicity of their excursions, their warm femininity, and sense of humor.
