Slimane is an aging migrant from the Maghreb whose ambition is to establish a successful restaurant in Sète, France. There, though, he meets skeptical opposition from the French bureaucracy. The title of this French-Tunisian film refers to a "grain of couscous" and to mullet, a type of small fish, both popular in Tunisian cuisine.

This event is free and open to the public with no RSVP required, and is co-sponsored by the Department of French and Italian, Hoff Theater and The Pepsi Enhancement Fund.
