“Darling, this is Younes. Yesterday he was my nephew, today he is our son.“

Younes' life is changed forever when his poverty-stricken parents surrender him to the care of his more affluent uncle. Re-named Jonas, he grows up in a colourful colonial Algerian town, and forges a unique friendship with a group of boys, an enduring bond that nothing – not even the Algerian Revolt – will shake. He meets Emilie – a beautiful, beguiling girl who captures the hearts of all who see her –
and an epic love story is set in motion.

Time and again Jonas is forced to to choose between two worlds: Algerian or European; past or present; love or loyalty, and finally decide if he will surrender to fate or take control of his own destiny at last.

What the Day Owes the Night is based on the eponymous novel by Mohammed Moulessehoul, formerly a high ranking officer in the Algerian army, who adopted a literary pseudonym Yasmina Khadra to avoid Algerian military censorship. He went to live in exile in France in 2000. The following year he published L'écrivain, an autobiographical novel, in which he reveals his true identity.

He is the author of The Attack, The Swallows of Kabul, In the Name of God, The Sirens of Baghdad and Wolf Dreams, among others. Yasmina Khadra is the recipient of the Grand Prix de Littérature the Henri Gal granted by the French Academy and the Légion d’honneur awarded by the Republic of France for his work as a novelist.

Based on the novel by Yasmina Khadra
directed by Alexandre Arcady, 2012
