    • Synopsis
    • Hedi is a simple young man. He is not very talkative, not very reactive and does not expect much from the life that is traced for him. Indifferent to everything around him, he just takes life as it comes. He allows his authoritarian and overwhelming mother to organize his marriage to Khedija. He allows his Boss to send him on a prospection trip to Mahdia during
      the week of his wedding celebrations. And he
      allows Ahmed, his brother who has come back from France especially to take part in the ceremony, dictate how he should behave. In other words, he takes it all as it comes. He understands what is happening to him, but he just waits for things to go by.
      In Mahdia, he meets Rim who works as an activity leader in a hotel, a seaside resort.
      At first, intrigued by her insouciance and frivolity, Hedi
      ends by getting involved in a passionate love relationship. In the meantime while the wedding preparations go on, Hedi is finally forced to
      make a choice.
