Rym and Majd are siblings living on their own in an old village house after both their parents abandoned them 8 years ago. Majd has been paralyzed for many years and in order to sustain their lives, Rym sells milk to the village. Conflicts between the siblings reach a point where Rym kills her brother's only companion, only to realize that Majd carries an anger inside of him way beyond Rym's imagination.

Director Biography - Chris Akoury

I’m a Lebanese freelance filmmaker and cinematographer who studied at the Lebanese University of fine arts Branch II. As a cinephile, I’ve been strongly influenced by the genius Andrei Tarkovsky and I have been captivated since the age of 7 by the magical world of the seventh art. I have worked as a cinematographer and filmed more than 12 short films, 2 medium length films and I’m currently working on a feature film. My directorial background is purely grounded by the European cinema and its approach is motivated by the human condition and the questioning of reality and existence.
