In a dusty, poor but lively village, a football match and irregular deliveries are what hold the interest of the locals. Water, food and gas arrive intermittedly by truck and are distrubuted to the residents, who gather to collect the goods impatiently and often in anger, with the best choices reserved for local shopkeeper Haj Sayed.

His beautiful daughter, Manal, is in a tense relationship with Zaki, but rebel Mounir schemes to win Manal’s affections from Zaki and cunningly pursues her, further fracturing the couple’s already delicate relationship. Mounir is not above playing dirty to achieve his goal. Zaki and Mounir take their rivalry to the town’s dirt soccer field to play for the ultimate prize, Manal’s hand. The two men fight it out on a wildly chaotic soccer field to the comical comments of a laid-back announcer over a loud speaker, while the townsfolk cheer them on. – Various sources
