Beirut in the 1990s, under Syrian occupation. An Egyptian documentary filmmaker wants to make a film about secret service interrogations of dissidents and gets caught in a net of intrigues and corruption. Meanwhile a young, married Lebanese is shot by a US embassy security guard. These two subplots move towards each other inexorably in this dark thriller.

Unfortunately the print didn't arrive. The screening has to be canceled. We are sorry.
