Thirty-year-old Hanna is very charming and doesn't know how to say "no." She suffers from the neurosis of kindness. This strange syndrome affects other members of her family too: her father Omar is a "grocer/social worker" and her mother Simone is a "home-help/psychiatrist." Hakim, her brother, doesn't share their neurosis, focused as he is on his Algerian roots and his religion. In fact he doesn't get on with Hanna at all. But an unexpected event will force Hanna and Hakim to reconnect.
