FRANCE

The first film by actor Samir Guesmi about a father-son relationship, without stereotypes or clichés. Guesmi has always been an outstanding actor. He is accompanied by the remarkable Abdelrani Bendaher, both shy and obstinate, victim of a sequence of events that he did not set in motion, seeking nothing but happiness for a father increasingly entangled in problems. A film for today's world.

Young Ibrahim’s life is spent divided between his serious and reserved father Ahmed, who prepares shellfish at the Royal Opéra brasserie, and his older friend Achille from their technical college, an expert in getting into trouble. Ahmed’s dreams of regaining his dignity are shattered when he is left to pay the price for a robbery committed by his son that goes wrong. After their relationship becomes strained, Ibrahim decides to accept the risks to rectify his mistakes...
