A road-movie for four people that goes from Orleans to Tangier. Viewers watch it seated in a Renault 12 installed in the garden of the Fondation Cartier.
When his mother dies (his show Finir en beauté is about mourning her), Mohamed El Khatib takes his uncle's puzzling advice to buy a Renault 12 and go to Tangier to find his legacy. Once in Morocco, he discovers he is the happy owner of four hectares of land in The Rif where another sort of culture is growing…
