At the port of Sète, Mr. Slimani, a tired 60-year-old, drags himself toward a shipyard job that has become more and more difficult to cope with as the years go by. He is a divorced father who forces himself to stay close to his family despite the schisms and tensions that are easily sparked off and that financial difficulties make even more intense.

However, it appears to be an unreachable dream given his meager, irregular salary that is not anywhere near enough to supply what he needs to realize his ambition.

Thanks to its ingeniousness and hard work, this dream soon becomes a reality...or almost...The Secret of the Grain featuring Habib Boufares and Hafsia Herzi is streaming with subscription on The Criterion Channel, available for rent or purchase on Google Play, and available for rent or purchase on Prime Video.
