A tale from North Africa, a story full of dazzling strangeness. Ben Tajah returns from a trip to the mountains. The one in the meeting makes his journeys in his head. Ben Tajah is old, the other is young, a stoner. They meet in the café of the Two Bridges. The one from the congregation smokes his sebsi, Ben Tajah thinks: 'The sky trembles, and the earth fears, and the two eyes are not brothers'. In a letter he picked up from the street bearing his name, he found the unusual message. Ben Tajah fears Satan. That one from the congregation fears the police. For half a night, the paths of the two merge. The morning leads each back to his own world.
