Zeina lives in Dubai. In the midst of a divorce, she sends her son Karim to stay with her sister in Kherbet Selem, a small village south of Lebanon, to spare him from his parents' fighting. A few days later, war breaks out in Lebanon.
Desperately worried, Zeina immediately heads to Lebanon via Turkey. Because of the blockade she doesn't reach the port of Beirut until the day of the cease fire. There she meets Tony, the only taxi driver who agrees to take her to the south.
Tony is a Christian. He lives in Beirut. Zeina is a Shiite. They have little in common but under these circumstances, that is irrelevant. They search the refugee centers across a ravaged country. When they get to Kherbet Selem, the town is in ruins. Zeina's sister has been killed and a young boy tells them that Karim has been taken away by French journalists.
Zeina and Tony set out in search of the lost child... A journey that brings them together as they encounter death and destruction everywhere.
