An Arab family heads home to Algeria after spending many years in France and goes head-on into culture shock. Older family members in their small town are also in shock due to the younger, Francofied members of the family and their attitudes - not to mention the fact that none of the children speak Arabic. Meanwhile, the younger children take one look at the small town and feel like they have landed on the moon. Eventually, the two extremes start to accommodate and come together, as the children transmit some of the more easy-going French acceptance of things to those around them, and in turn, are taught Arabic. The family finally decides it might be better for all concerned to move to a bigger city, but in the meantime, a series of mishaps and misunderstandings has gone far to lessen the earlier gap by creating some simple human bonding between the newcomers and those around them.
