Shortly after the death of his unique uncles, Didier Frenkel finds a treasure: an animated archive from Egypt starring Mish-Mish Effendi, the Arabic equivalent of Mickey Mouse. His uncles have kept this chapter in their lives under cover.
Didier begins restoring the films in a lab in Paris and unveils the story of the pioneers of Arab animation. This is the moment when Didier’s mother strongly opposes the project.
