After more than 30 years in the shipyards, Slimane, a 61-year-old worker, is unemployed. With his meagre severance check, the divorced father decides to open a restaurant on board an old ship. Rym, his daughter-in-law, believes in the project and helps him with the administrative obstacles. But financial support is hard to come by.

Slimane decides to organize a dinner for possible investors. His ex-wife and their children arrive to give support, but the irresponsibility of his son, a womanizer, is likely to seriously compromise the success of the evening.
