Aicha lives in a remote Tunisian mountain top village and dreams of a better life. After promising her the world, her boyfriend Mourad disappears and leaves Aicha in a state of confusion and despair. Meanwhile a doctor, Adam, arrives in this peaceful village to escape from the city and the stress of his profession. Soon the tranquil setting of this place will be turned upside down. With a generation that struggles with modern day ideals, religion and identity, this film portrays a moving, funny and challenging story that breaks down the barriers of today's misconceptions about Western and Arab culture.
