In an old stone house on the est coast of Morocco, Sarah Henderson, an American journalist, is welcomed by its inhabitants: Nick, the aristocratic English owner, yann the French sailor, Aisha, the mother of Yann's child, and Aziz, with whom she falls passionately in love. The mysterious "man who feeds seagulls" crosses Sarah's path, obliging her to reconsider her own actions and those of her mother, who came to this town in 1936 and was sent home in disgrace.
