Haim and I follows two Algerians: a Jewish pharmacist Haim bin Maymun and a Muslim philosophy teacher Arsalan Hanafi, who grow up together in the same neighbourhood. They share meals and memories, attend the same primary school, secondary school, and university, facing racism and provocations under the French, in Saida, Mascara, Algiers, and Oran. Their destinies are interwoven, they both become part of the resistance movements against French colonialism, struggling to free their homeland, each in their own way. The war separates them, and the day after it ends, everything changes.
