Elias works at a tiny convenience store in the rural Moroccan village of Tazzeka, making couscous for the locals and the occasional tourist, while dreaming of preparing lobster and rack of lamb in Paris, the international capital of gastronomy. Under the dual influence of his grandmother’s home cooking and a well-thumbed cookbook by world-renowned chef Joël Robuchon, Elias has become a chef with that unteachable gift for making irresistible, unique dishes: it seems that all he needs to make his dream come true is to get himself to France. Yet when he exchanges the serene mountains of his hometown or the roaring traffic in Paris, things are nothing like what he imagined.

Support for the Tournees Festival is provided by Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States / Centre National de la Cinématographie et l’Image Animée Campus France USA / Florence Gould Foundation / highbrow entertainment.
