HANI is a 20 years old painter. He is looking for his new muse to paint a new piece of art for a festival to which he was nominated. His mother, a mid aged widowed called Fadwa, is living a sad life going through the memories of her dead son and her lost husband. His aim is to get his mother our of her shell through the help of his one of a kind friend called Carol.. Would he be able to do so before it is time to come back? Come back? Yes.. because his nature would take an non predictable twist.


This film is about the suffocation of living in a city, Beirut, the soul of which is torn by a violent reconstruction process.


The documentary traces the stories of daily life during violent civil war through the recollections of four middle-aged characters who lived, lost, and struggled through it; a war that ended abruptly without addressing its causes or consequences. An entire generation, now in their 40s and 50s had never spoken about the war to their children. For many, this was the first time the past is uncovered and shared.
