    • Synopsis
    • July 1976, the year of the heatwave. Claude, an Algerian Jew who came to France 15 years earlier, takes wife Isabelle and sons Simon (12) and Bibou (8) to Brittany on vacation. For Isabelle, it’s a return to Le Rocher Abraham, the village where she was born. The day after their arrival, they are joined by two other couples.
      The holidaymakers are viewed with distrust by the locals. Algerian Jews from Paris and provincial Catholics don’t mix comfortably. But gradually, the suspicion wanes, giving way to friendship, laughter and holiday romance. Over this long hot summer, Claude and Isabelle get their marriage back on track, while Bibou and Simon spend a memorable summer discovering the world of grown-ups.
