Synopsis

Teodore is in his thirties and has ADHD. He decides to finish high school in a multiethnic school for adults. In parallel with his hectic student life, where he meets a charming and somewhat anxious special education teacher, Teodore is thrust into the reality of sharing an apartment with Habib, an Egyptian who is as generous as he is messy.

Martine, Teo’s mother, has an appendix and asks him to go to the emergency room with her.

Teo and Habib are in their kitchen studying for their big math test the next day. Magda, Habib’s mother, is cooking for them and she is making a lot of noise. Teo and Habib have a hard time concentrating, but they don’t dare ask her to leave because she is blackmailing them emotionally. Everything changes when Martine, Teo’s mother, arrives at the apartment, convinced that she is having an appendicitis attack. She asks Teo to go to the emergency room with her. When Magda gets in the way, the tension between her and Martine increases. Teo thinks of asking Maher, Habib’s cousin, to examine Martine and he confirms that it is indeed appendicitis. Magda sacrifices herself to protect Teo and accompanies Martine to the emergency room. Teo and Habib are finally alone at the apartment and they resume their studying. Teo tells Habib that if his exam goes well, he will ask Agathe out to dinner. The next day, Teo finishes his exam and goes to Agathe’s office.
