Directed by Jihane Chouaib (Lebanon, 2016, 98 min.). In French and Arabic with English subtitles. A young ballet dancer named Nada (Golshifteh Farahani, Paterson; The Lemon Tree) returns to Lebanon after years abroad to find that she feels like a foreigner in her own country. Her Arabic is rusty, making communication difficult, and she discovers that her family’s palatial home has been partially destroyed by bombings. She decides to move into the dilapidated mansion and becomes obsessed with solving a family mystery: the disappearance of her grandfather, who vanished during the civil war.
