A summer evening in Beirut… The life of Toufic, a young Lebanese man, and his nightly strolls… Between his family, friends and love affairs, he tries to seize every day of his life, through pleasures and entertainment. For him, every second is the most important. Soon he discovers that having a normal life, in this country, is a luxury. 15 years after the war had ended; a volcano is lying dormant on every street corner, like a time-ticking bomb that is ready to explode?
