Set in the Tunisian village of Bizerte, the debut film by director Jilani Saadi displays the way a person's differences are accepted in a traditional culture. With red-blond hair and light features, Khorma (Mohamed Graïaa) stands out in a crowd and his odd mannerism only accentuate his distinct place in this small community. Ridiculed by the locals, Khorma is taken in by the town crier, Bou Khaleb (Mohamed Mourali), and taught the customs of this unique vocation. All goes well until Bou Khaleb mistakenly announces a death instead of a wedding and the declaration gets him in deep trouble, leaving Khorma as a possible replacement.
