The streaming of North Wind will end on Friday.
The film is centred on the lives of two men, their connection is a factory in Northern France, which was relocated to Suburbs of Tunis, Tunisia.
Hervé was the only worker in the French factory ready to accept its closing because he planned to become a fisherman and pass this passion on to his son.
Meanwhile in Tunisia, Foued saw an opportunity of his unemployment; believing he found a way to look after his sick mother and also gain the love of a particular woman. Hervé and Foued’s destinies mirror and echo one another.
Beyond The Horizon is available until December 6.
It is set during the 1976 drought and is described as a 'brilliant and merciless evocation of the once-in-a-century 1976 heatwave and its consequences for one French farming family'.
