Cinéma Inch'Allah! is a story of four friends growing up making movies.

The film portrays four Belgian-Moroccan filmmakers in their thirties by following the production process of their latest film. Since adolescence, and with incredible enthusiasm, they have managed to produce over thirty low-budget movies in which they often have played the main characters themselves. Their movies are not only the sum of their fears and desires, but also a way of projecting an image of themselves towards their own community and the outside world. But a lot has changed since adolescence... When one of them decides to radically change his life, their friendship and the future of their common cinema goals are threatened. Can the group survive this crisis or have they outgrown each-other?
