On a wintry day in Montreal, Alex and her mother Maia receive a package in the mail. Inside are the countless notebooks, cassettes and photographs that a teenage Maia sent from Beirut to her best friend who had left for Paris to escape the war. Maia refuses to open this Pandora’s box but Alex is irresistibly attracted to these testimonies of an unknown past. She discovers, between fantasy and reality, her mother’s tumultuous adolescence, her first love and the murderous war that rages, bringing to the surface well-kept secrets. With these revelations, Alex convinces her mother to return to Lebanon to face the ghosts of her past.
