Dubai Film Connection and Enjaaz


Nada, a young ballet dancer, leaves Paris and returns for the first time to Lebanon, the country she left when she was a child. She rediscovers her abandoned family house partially destroyed by bombings. The garden is a garbage dump. She decides to settle in this place filled with childhood memories and sets herself a mission: to find the body of her grandfather, who vanished during the civil war. Her quest takes her through the length and breadth of Lebanon, through legends and secrets. It is an introspective adventure for a young woman in search of her identity.
