The city of Dunkerque, France, is throwing their annual carnival in which the town's citizens take to
the street dressed like harlequins and jesters. At the center of the action is a tough and jealous security
guard, his wife Béa (Testud) and an obsessive oaf named Larbi (Abdallah). After Béa and Larbi share a
drunken kiss, the scene is set for 24 hours of alcohol-soaked self-indulgence.
