During the 1982 invasion of Lebanon at a quaker school in the mountains above Beirut, 11-year-old Wissam tries to tell a classmate about his crush on her, while his teachers on different sides of the political divide, try to mask their fears. Mouaness, who also wrote the script, splits the film between two perspectives; that of the adults and that of the children. The result is a layered script that delicately explores the social schisms and the complexities of love and war.
