During the early 1960's, Paris, like the much of Europe, was an explosion of life. Against this background, in a working class neighborhood, two unlikely characters - a young Jew and an elderly Muslim - begin a friendship.
Momo (Pierre Boulanger), is virtually an orphan even though he lives with his father, a man slowly descending into a crippling depression. His only friends are the street whores. However Momo buys his groceries at the neighborhood shop owned by Ibrahim (Omar Sharif).
After Momo is abandoned by his father, Ibrahim becomes the one adult in Momo's life. Together they begin a journey that will change their lives forever...
