The film transports us into the lives of Hayat & Wafaa and to the city of Beirut in Lebanon, 25 years after the end of a bloody civil war. Through the intimate stories and memories of these two female protagonists of different backgrounds, we understand why the city's neighbourhoods are still walled in by invisible boundaries and whether forgiveness and reconciliation are possible in a country still broken over religious and political ideology.

This film will only be available in Docs for Sale on November 26, after its World Premiere.
