Comedian, scriptwriter and director Salem plays tracksuited, moustached Mounir Mekbek, who is down on his luck, ridiculed by his neighbours, and saddled with a narcoleptic sister, Rym, who is fast approaching spinsterhood. After a night on the town, he announces her impending nuptials - to a rich, European suitor, no less. Now his troubles really begin… Salem's warm character-driven comedy was the Arab world festival hit of 2008.
