It's summer in Tangiers, Morocco, and a family comes together for three days in their home following the death of their patriarch, the influential businessman Moulay Hassan (film legend Omar Sharif), to share their memories and to grieve his loss, according to Muslim tradition.

They have left the beach behind and swapped swimsuits for djellabas as everyone gathers in a show of mourning. However, sparks start to fly when prodigal daughter Sofia jets in from New York after several years away. The youngest, she made a new life for herself as an actress in America, but she only ever gets roles as terrorists on US TV. Her return provides the opportunity to settle some scores with her sisters, as the order once maintained by Moulay breaks down.

Between laughter and tears, a collective hysteria leads each of the women to face up to some home truths that have boiled beneath the surface for years.

100 mins, A comedy about a tragedy, from France, in French with English Sub-titles
