Al-wadi (The Valley)
Following a car accident on a lonely mountain road, a middle-aged man loses his memory. Covered in blood, he walks along the deserted road. Further along, he encounters people, whose car has broken down due to engine trouble and he helps them restart their car. The group is reluctant to leave him stranded, so they take him home to their large estate in the Bekaa Valley, a place where production is not only agricultural – but a place he may never leave again.
