Following the loss of their family home in Algeria, three brothers and their mother relocate to different parts of the world. Saïd (Jamel Debbouze) moves to Paris to make his fortune in the shady clubs and boxing halls of Pigalle; Messaoud (Roschdy Zem) joins the French army fighting in Indochina; and Abdelkader (Sami Bouajila) becomes a leader of the Algerian independence movement in France.
Gradually, their interconnecting destinies reunite them in the French capital, where freedom is a battle to be fought and won.
