A film about the fate of immigrants, social inequality, simple life trifles, without any inventions and pathos.

“The Secret of the Grain” – a fragment of life of Arab immigrants in a small French port city. Each of them (there are many characters in the film) have real problems, both personal and social. All the characters are united by one guy (60-year-old Simon) and the opening of his restaurant, where everyone gathers together …

The characters of Tunisian Abdellatif Kechiche are always real, there is not a single drop of fakeness in them, and that is why the long dialogues and movie scenes typical of his films reach so close to the viewer.
