Childhood memories bring Nada from Paris back home: a village in Lebanon. The language she has forgotten and home does not welcome her with open arms. Her only comfort is the abandoned family house haunted with the presence of her grandfather, who mysteriously disappeared during the civil war. Something has happened in this house….
In her debut director Jihane Chouaib mixes her own family history with elements of fiction. Nada is played by art house diva of The Middle East Golshifteh Farahani, who currently plays an equally headstrong role in Jim Jarmush new film Paterson.
