Comedy. The anticipated arrival of a German documentary film crew in a small southern Tunisian town leads to attempts by the pompous head of the local cultural committee to "clean up" the area. This involves trying to eliminate or hide aspects of the character and culture of the town in order to show a better "image" to the Westerners.
