In the summer of 1986, Karim, 13 years old and an intern at Lycée Lyautey in Casablanca, goes to Boujad for the summer holidays. He has not returned since the death of his mother seven years earlier.
He reunites with his father Messaoud, his stepmother and his half-brother.
But the reunion is colder than he had expected.
Karim finds refuge outside the family home when he meets the neighborhood kids:

Krimo and his gang, as well as the beautiful Nadia. But it is in Mehdi’s company, the local bully, that Karim will discover the hidden face of the city and attempt to regain the place he feels he has lost in his own family.
