The film is set entirely on a shoot and tells the story of three characters. The Director Nouri, middle aged, is torn between his private life wich is falling apart and a film he is afraid of making, because although he is really invested with it, he cannot see it ending. The actor, Lotfi who accepted at the beginning, the principle of ignoring the fate of the character he plays, feels that he is being manipulated when he discovers that the dancer he is supposed to be interpreting is destined to become a fundamentalist.

Bahta, the character he plays sees his plan to leave for Europe to become a dancer fall down short because of the war on Iraq. He ends up in the hands of a fishy predicator who manipulates him and brain washes him. The film is being shot between Rades and La Goulette at the beginning of Spring 2003, just when Iraq is being invaded by the American army. All the characters feel humilated, wounded by this war… The spectre of September 11th is floating over them. For Nouri, the only way out is to exorcise all this through fiction.
