Storyline



©
A village in Algiers. Proud and a bluffer, Mounir wishes to be admired by all, but he has a weakness: His sister, Rym, who falls asleep anywhere. One night on the way back from the city, and quite inebriated, he shouts out to all and sunder that a rich businessman has asked for his sister’s hand. By the next morning, he’s the envy of all. Trapped by his own lie, Mounir changes his family’s destiny.
