Sélim, a young man on the loose, cross-dresses and becomes a prostitute. With Louise's complicity, he spends his evenings in clubs to meet clients eager to trade for money. On Sundays, Sélim leaves this dreary environment and returns to a more peaceful reality, around dull family lunches shared one-on-one with his father. But Omar, his father, lives locked in mourning for his wife, and Sélim's efforts to get closer to him always fail. They pass each other without ever meeting each other. Only fate will bring them together a little too late.
