Summer in Tangiers. After the death of their father, a family of women gets together for 3 days in the family home to grieve and remember together, as is the Muslim custom. Goodbye to beaches and bikinis, it is now the time to wear djellabas, to gather everyone together and to deck the house out in funeral attire. The house is full of activity. Things reach a crescendo when Sofia, the youngest daughter, returns home. An actor who only plays terrorist roles in American television series, she arrives from New York after several years absence. Her return becomes the means to settle scores with her sisters and to overturn the order established by the defunct patriarch. Between laughter and tears, a collective hysteria allows all of the women to discover their true selves.
