Synopsis: In 1943, France had been under German rule for three years. In order to throw off Nazi control, the First French Army was recruited in Africa, composed mostly of 130,000 North Africans who were contemptuously dubbed indigènes - “natives.” Bouchareb immediately draws the vast sweep of the story to a human level, introducing four young men who choose to fight for the French, each for his own reasons. Abdelkader (Sami Bouajila) is a true believer, volunteering to defend the French ideals of liberté, égalité, fraternité. Yassir (Samy Nacéri) hopes to collect riches along the way, while Saïd (Jamel Debbouze) simply wants to escape his family’s crushing poverty. Messaoud (Roschdy Zem) is entranced by France and yearns to see the country of his dreams. Maybe he can even meet a French girl.
