Synopsis

Nord de la France. L'usine d'Hervé est délocalisée. Il est le seul ouvrier à s'y résigner car il poursuit un autre destin : devenir pêcheur et transmettre cette passion à son fils. Banlieue de Tunis. L'usine est relocalisée. Foued, au chômage, pense y trouver le moyen de soigner sa mère, et surtout de séduire la fille qu'il aime. Les trajectoires de Hervé et Foued se ressemblent et se répondent.
