SYNOPSIS
The film takes place at a grocery store in Switzerland that is run by Egyptians. In a moment of anger, a father loses temper and disciplines his disobedient child. A shocked customer immediately intervenes to express her concern. Other customers join the conversation, they each put in their two cents and the staff is swamped. The discussion turns into a debate, which turns into quarrel. The situation gradually gets out of hand and into chaos.
