Leila Laabidi lives in luxury in Casablanca, in the shadow of her rich husband. After his sudden death in a remote village, she sets out on a mission to bring his remains home. Her driver Boukal, who transports the dead in his free time and has dreams of joining the police force, accompanies her on the journey. He brings with him two members of his family: Aicha, a singer, and Hassan, a violinist who suffers from a tic. With some difficulties, the group makes their way to the Atlas mountains, where Leila is confronted with a way of life much different than she is used to.
