She lands up in Belgium, working on André's farm, which grows strawberries. Laila soon becomes disenchanted and uncovers the extremely unfair system that governs the contracts of seasonal workers. She meets Sofiane, the foreman on the farm, for whom she forms an attachment, and Julie who despite her status seeks to defend the right to dignity for everyone and acceptable pay and working conditions.Gradually, her feelings of revolt will infect those around her and André's little farming operation will be turned on its head.
