Omar is a young Algerian man who holds a good job in the Department of Fraud and lives in a crowded apartment with his sisters, his mother and grandparents. He loves to listen to Andalusi music and watch bollywood at the cinema, to party with his friends, and to dream about meeting women.

A friend of his gives him a tape; when he listens to it, he is fascinated by the woman’s voice he hears. His friend arranges for him to meet the woman, who is totally different from what he had imagined on hearing her voice...
