Jacky is alive ! Well, that’s Michel Coulaincourt’s claim, and he is a traveler with a tendancy to lie. He doesn’t have any difficulties with lying, especially if it helps him to coax Sophie… and to take the bedroom of the Kaboul Kitchen’s ex-boss.  Yet Jacky is really dead, and Michel, chased by russian mobsters, is in a good position to know something about it…

In the case of Amanullah, he goes out of jail, ruined : the CIA has dismantled his business. But as the phoenix rising up from his ashes, the colonel has a great plan : drugs are over, say hello to the future president! He will need to earn a new respectability, and the program « Roses against Opium », so dear to the humanitarians in Kaboul, is going to take some damage because of it. But this is without considering the help of his new friend Michel, who can smell the millions of dollars mixed with the roses… until he finds out that, besides having the russians on his ass, some new kind of trouble will come from Afghanistan.

Second round in the presidential race, in Paris. On posters and tv screens, one man promises that « the future starts now ». For the first time, the favorite candidate has origins from Algeria.

The same day in Saint-Etienne. The Nerrouche family is in the middle of the heat : they are preparing a wedding. Everybody runs, shouts, and embraces each other… But a young man called Krim, witness of the husband, can’t stop himself from coming and going. He is agitated and nobody understands why.

Is it because of the embarrassing atmosphere surrounding the wedding between a Kabyle and an Arab? Is it because of the rumor that the husband might be homosexual? Or is it the stream of texts from his mysterious cousin that troubles him?

During twenty-four hours only, all the strings will tie and untie themselves : the collision between a family’s destiny and the country’s hopes is inevitable.
