In this gentle comedy, Omar (Boualem Benani) is a young Algerian man, full of life, with a decent government job, who lives in a crowded apartment with his sisters, parents and grandparents. His main joys in life are to collect Arab and Indian music, to party with his friends, and to dream about romance with women. On one of his cassettes, given to him by a friend, he hears a woman's voice which astonishes him. That same friend arranges for him to meet the woman, who looks nothing like the ravishing creature he had imagined on hearing her voice.
