This film contains hardcore gay sex and was filmed in Tunisia. The cafe scene was filmed at Sidi Bou Said near Tunis, the medina looks very much like Sousse, the beach scene location is unknown. The film begins in a male hammam where the main actor, Pierre Yves Darget, has a number of sexual encounters with most of the youths in there. Eventually one of the youths leaves and Pierre-Yves runs after him. However, the youth loses Pierre in the maze of the medina, so Pierre tries to find him by visiting various medina shops. In each shop he visits Pierre has one or several heavy sexual relationships with different youths or men. Eventually Pierre returns to the male hammam and has several more sexual encounters with the youths. When finished Pierre leaves and sees the youth he was looking for leaving a medina house. They go to an outdoor cafe to be alone, and then move on to the beach and frolic in the sea. They then get a room in a hotel and continue with heavy sexual romping. Finally, Pierre is laid in the arms of the youth on the hotel''s flat roof whilst chatting, with the sun setting behind.
It all starts at a hammam. In the steamy bath, a French teenager discovers Arab sensuality at its best, like a thunderbolt. But when his young Moroccan leaves the building, he becomes invisible in the kasbah''s alleyways.
Our young hero sets out to follow him through the busy streets but, too far behind him, he gets lost in the souks where he will discover, in the back rooms of shops, the very particular hospitality of Eastern traders.
Among the waves of bronzed men comes an ebony adonis, probably the most beautiful in all of Cadinot''s collection.
The play of his white clothes over his black skin gives his scenes an extraordinary sensuality. Without doubt, it is one of the most dazzling pages in the history of gay eroticism.
Cadinot is responsible for the most sensual holiday programme on the subject of Northern Africa. Since these images, there must have been a onslaught of gay charter flights to Northern Africa!
At the end of his chase, returning to the hammam, the French youth experiences a moment of intense heat in the middle of a group of young guys who are all different and very... undertaking.
In the end, he finds the object of his desires in sensual scenes at the edge of the sea and in his bedroom.
