Synopsis

La Goulette is an historic port and beach on the outskirts of Tunis inhabited by different communities and cultures who live in harmony. The story centres around three girls, Meriem, Gigi and Tina, who share the dilemma of freedom as women in today's world given that their fathers (Youssef a Muslim, Jojo a Jew and Guiseppe a Sicilian Catholic) respect their own traditions and intend to marry their daughters within their religious communities. In a reaction against their families, the three girls pledge to each lose their virginity on the Catholic feast day of the Virgin, each with a boy from a different religion. Guest appearance by Claudia Cardinale who grew up and went to school in La Goulette. The film is based on the director's own childhood and friendships.
