During a cease-fire in the Lebanon-Israel conflict of 2006, a Christian taxi driver brings a nontraditional Shiite woman from Beirut to the heart of the conflict in the country's south. While they scour the rubble of local towns for her son who was sent to live with her traditional family while she was staying with her husband in Dubai, they discover that despite their very different backgrounds they have much in common. And during their trip through the desolate countryside, the two travelers develop a deep bond as a response to the death striking all around them.
