Spanning more than half a century of Algeria's tumultuous recent history, The Dust of Promises is a lyrical love story about freedom and fate, identity and belonging.
A poignant tale of secret lovers brought together and pulled apart as they navigate Algeria's changing political landscape--from the heady, bright peaks of independence to the dark depths of corruption and disillusionment--this is a sweeping epic and an arresting ode to a once-great country.
