Overview

An anguished mother's hope that her long-lost husband will return is dashed when after 15 years he is officially reported as dead by the government, and her frustrated, narcoleptic son struggles to catch up with a life he sees as passing him by in this meditative family drama from filmmakers Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige. It's been 15 years since Claudia's Julia Kassar husband went marching off to war, and through it all she has never lost hope that one day he would walk through their door and she would once again feel his warm embrace. As Claudia clings to the love of her 26-year-old son Malek Ziad Saad as a reminder of happier days, Malek's frustration over the breakup with his ex-girlfriend Zeina Alexandra Kahwagi threatens to boil over into violence at any moment. Only when these two lost souls unbind themselves from the tragic burdens of the past will they be able to truly live free, but what does it take to ease the pain of the past when uncertainly and grief is all one has ever known?
