Kamil, a struggling musician, has been persuaded by his uncle to return to Lebanon to look for work. As he travels by boat from Cypress to Lebanon, he meets Raya, a beautiful and mysterious woman who has found her place in Parisian bourgeoisie society, but is returning to Lebanon to search for her lost son.

As they head toward their homeland, both Raya and Kamil confront the bitter despair and destruction, both physical and moral, of their country. With Raya’s help, Kamil also comes to terms with his own turbulent past.

Codsi won the Special Jury Prize at the 1994 Francophone International Film Festival for the “pertinence of his purpose, insight of his narration and audacity and fairness of his vision.”
