Amine is totally dependent on his wife, Ouafae, and his 12 years old daughter, Lina, as he lost his memory and self-awareness and can no longer speak nor recognize any one. One day, while waking with him on the beach, Lina is approached by Inas, a mysterious young woman. As Amine hears Inas’ laughter, he says her name. Ouafae and Lina regain hope and ask Inas to help Amine recover his memory. Inas does help Amine, but she also seduces him so that, as he heals, Amine ends up divorcing Ouafae and marrying Inas. While Ouafae falls into a deep depression, Lina is totally overwhelmed, feeling guilty for the family break-up. Yet, she would not give up on bringing her parents back together.
