France, eve of the second round of presidential elec-tions that will oppose a candidate of the Conservative party, to Ider Chaouch, a candidate originate from North Africa, representative of no party. In Saint-Etienne, the Nerrouche family is reunited to celebrate Slim’s wedding. The preparations are tense, the tempers heated by the elections, none of them put all their hope in this candidate from the community, others do not believe that he is a politician different from the others and find him almost «too integrated». Another reason to be worried: the two cousins of the groom, two brothers with opposite temperaments, will be reunited: Fouad, the solar, star of a very popular soap, engaged to the daughter of Chaouch and Nazir, the cerebral, pioneer of the mosque, which abandoned promising studies to stay in Saint-Etienne and super-vise the activities of the teenagers of the districts. We also observe the behavior of Krim, their young teenage cousin, idled in the midst of an existential crisis. The next day, Fouad returns to Paris with Krim, so that he can take a break and change his ideas by getting away from his dubious associations of the district. Fouad even invites Krim to come with him to join Ider Chaouch to live in the heart of the action the events of this election day. This is where Krim will commit the unthinkable: shoot Chaouch. The day after the second round, France wakes up in shock.
