In the arid Tunisian village of Bizerte, Khorma’ odd ways and unusual looks have marked him as different. His guardian is old Bou Khaleb, the official announcer of births, deaths, and marriages. When Bou mistakenly announces the death of a woman rather than her daughter’s marriage, Khorma is chosen to take his place. The film immerses us in the power struggles among the clerics of the “religion business”.
