arie (Nathalie Coupal), a Montreal publisher specializing in memoirs by war survivors, receives an anonymous document, the condensed story of Ali, a young Palestinian who grew up in a refugee camp in Lebanon. Intrigued, Marie begins a search for the author's identity. She enlists the help of Joseph (Joseph Antaki), a Lebanese man who is painting her office. A strange relationship develops between the pair, who are from very different backgrounds. Then Joseph suddenly disappears. Torn apart by her difficult mission, Marie starts a journey into the past. In a small Lebanese village, in the heart of a bloodstained culture whose unspoken issues are infinitely enigmatic, Marie will eventually find the key to every mystery.
