Synopsis

Wahab, a young Quebec resident of Lebanese orgin, is shocked when he hears of his father's death. Raised by his aunt and uncle, he never knew the man, but recordings made by his father help him learn the truth behind his mother's death during his birth, the love between his father and mother and their desire to become parents.

But his mother's family holds his father responsible for their daughter's death and force him to leave Wahab to them. Upset by these revelations, the young man, in spite of his family's disapproval, decides to go bury his father in Ryat, his native village in Lebanon.

Unaware of the country's recent past marked by war and the current situation, the trip is dangerous for Wahab and for those who have agreed to accompany him.
