Storyline

Lebanon, 2017. The garbage crisis has not been solved, the health threats are now bigger than ever and more acid rain is coming. Everyone in town, disillusioned and fed up with it, has decided that this situation cannot go on anymore, and plan to leave, forever. Hala, however, hardened wild child in the body of a young woman, who has been hiding in her nest for a long time, refuses to follow the movement, clinging to whatever remains of home. Through its colorful characters and lack of leader figure, Hala and this town serve as a microcosm of a country that has lots its glory, and its leaderless generation
