In the French port town of Sete, the large Arab workforce struggles to cling onto its identity and traditions while bringing up its children with western ideals. Sixty-something shipyard worker Slimane loses his job after many years of loyal service and turns his attentions to the pipe dream of opening a restaurant aboard a boat. To launch the venture, he intends to host a large meal cooked by his estranged wife Souad, whose speciality is a fish couscous. Slimane's lover, hotelier Latifa, is ill at ease about the plans to work closely with Souad but she is comforted to know that her spirited, teenage daughter Rym is helping to co-ordinate festivities.
