Filmmaker Yasmina Yahiaoui takes an comic look at live in a North African neighborhood with this upbeat ensemble piece detailing the lives of three North African women who opt to shed Islamic tradition in favor of living life European style. When hairdresser Marfouz (Fellag), the longtime, middle-aged lover of femme fatale belly-dancer Djamila (Monia Hichri), gives into family pressure and opts to import a bride from Maghreb, the other residents of their street vow to free the demure young bride from a grueling future of domestic servitude.
