Me and Haim

Habib Sayah

Me and Haim follows two Algerians, Jewish pharmacist Haim bin Maymun and Muslim philosophy teacher Arsalan Hanafi, grew up together in the same neighbourhood. Sharing food and memories, they attended the same primary school, secondary school and university, and face racism and provocations in Saida, Mascara, Algiers and Oran under the French. Their destinies have always been linked, and they both become involved in resistance to the occupation, struggling to free their homeland in their own way. The war separates them, and the day after it finishes everything will change.
