His boat sank in the Mediterranean. The whole crew perished. He is the only survivor. The camera follows him as he decides to relive this miracle and talk about the dramatic twists and turns he has experienced.

In 2009, after more than eight years experience in editing, he began making documentaries with Cinétéléfilms. “El Kontra” was his first documentary feature (Special Award of the Douz Doc Days jury), followed by “Abdelaziz Thaalbi”, “Maluf” and “Sfax intramuros”. “Yahia the survivor” is his most recent film.
