A small town in Algeria. A little removed from the war which is tearing the country apart, yet at the heart of the crisis which is destroying it, we meet two young men, without a job, leisure activities or hope. The film follows them in their daily wanderings between endless boredom and their wait for the improbable. It shows their humor, their vitality, their friendship and their will to live despite all their troubles.
