In southern France, a Franco-Arabic shipyard worker pursues his dream of converting a dilapilated boat into a restaurant that will specialize in his ex-wife's fish couscous, a meal that she prepares for the family every Sunday.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Marie-Pierre Ulloa, a lecturer in the French and Italian Department who teaches French and Francophone cultural and intellectual history, with a focus on North Africa, the Caribbean and the American West.

This film is part of the annual Stanford Global Studies Summer Film Festival running most Wednesdays from June 13 to September 12. This year's festival features 10 films from around the world that focus on the theme “Friends & Family: Tales from Near and Far.” For more information on this year's festival, please visit the SGS Summer 2018 Film Festival Line-up
