Antoine arrives in Tangiers from Europe to supervise the building of an audiovisual center in the city’s free zone. He’s in charge of speeding up the construction works, but the secret aim of his journey is to link up with Cecile, who he has continued to love with a silent passion for more than thirty years.
Cecile has forgotten Antoine. She emigrated to North Africa and has been through the ups and downs of married life with Nathan, a Jewish-Moroccan doctor younger than herself. They have a son, Samy, who lives in Paris.
