The film is an intimate and often humorous portrait of three generations in the refugee camp of Ain El-Helweh in southern Lebanon. Based on the wealth of personal recordings, family archives and historical footage, it is an illuminating study of belonging, friendship, and family. The film is more than just a family portrait, it records what is being forgotten and marks what should not be erased from collective memory
