About the movie:

Youssef Salem, 45 years old, originally from a family of Algerian immigrants in a working-class neighborhood of Port-de-Bouc, lives in Paris where he dedicates himself to writing.
After setbacks, he decides to write a partly autobiographical novel, inspired by his youth and notably the taboos surrounding sexuality in the environment where he grew up, titled "Toxic Shock". The book sparks a passionate public debate but also creates tension within his family, which he must struggle to keep together.
