Où est l'amour dans la palmeraie?



Can love be found on the Nikah (No. 1 Muslim matrimonial service provider)? In the Koran? In t'khlidi (tradition)? Or in s'hour (witchcraft)? Can love be found at the souk (market) or the moussem (local annual fair)? How can love blossom with the separation of the sexes, with the obsession of virginity, with arranged marriages? The film investigates two concepts of love and confronts two completely different ways of thinking. It's the story of an encounter between two men, between two cultures.
