Nadine is a resilient Lebanese housewife, although years of taking care of her alcoholic husband have nearly crushed her vivacious spirit. She meets Kirsten, a quirky, self-assured post-grad from America who has moved to Beirut to teach English. As the two women's friendship deepens, Nadine reclaims some of her independence and challenges Kirsten's understanding of the world. While Kirsten becomes increasingly involved in Nadine’s personal life, tensions begin to rise between Nadine and her husband. One fateful night, Nadine and Kirsten become accidental partners-in-crime and must embark on a perilous journey of loyalty and self-discovery.
