December 2010, a young Tunisian becomes the symbol of the Jasmine revolution. His immolation will ignite the Arab world. After four weeks of protest and a general strike, the irremovable President Ben Ali fled the country. All over the Middle East, people are rising up and demanding democracy. Hopes very quickly disappointed. In Egypt, a military junta will ultimately replace the authoritarian Hosni Mubarak, the start of a new dictatorship.
