The Arab Spring of 2011 was sparked by the Jasmine Revolution of Tunisia. In Paris, people take to the streets in support, but 14-year-old Marwenn, though of Tunisian background, has no interest in politics. Then he stumbles upon a rally, gets his picture in the paper and suddenly he is the coolest kid in school. Encouraged by his irascible grandfather, Marwenn travels to Tunisia on a journey of self-discovery in this charming and humorous coming-of-age film.
