A father, mother, daughter and son sit down to eat. Animated by their impulses, this family theatre becomes a sometimes tragic play. The son’s emancipation and rebellion triggers tensions. Kader Belarbi seeks to X-ray the complex family ties that are often revealed paroxysmally during traditional family meals.
