This Algerian wedding farce delivers sharp character comedy and trenchant social satire. Writer/director Lyes Salem plays the status-hungry Mounir who is nettled by village tittering about his attractive younger sister Rym's narcolepsy. He shows them who's top dog with a fantastic pack of lies about her engagement to a European business mogul. Soon they are all kow towing and offering Mounir bribes. Rym's clandestine liaison with his best friend renders the inevitable truth even more inconvenient than Mounir realises.
