Tahiti, 35 years old, was born in Cameroon. Attached to the mythical history of Algeria, he left his country to live there. Without papers after ten years now, he tries to survive working at the Alger Aéro-habitat modernist building, where he also lives. Disillusioned and disappointed by the way he was received there, Tahiti plans to come back home and be again with his family.
