Mounir Mekbek (played by director, Lyes Salem) lives with his family in a village in the heart of the Algerian Aures. An arrogant man, he has only one dream: to finally be appreciated by his fellow citizens. His Achilles' heel is his sister Rym, who falls asleep anywhere and whom the village is convinced will end up a spinster. One evening, Mounir returns from the town, and announces that he's found a rich suitor. And the organisation for the ceremony begins... without a bridegroom.
