    • Synopsis
    • Lebanon, 2020. The trash crisis that started in 2014 has escalated to an unbearable point. It's hard to live in Lebanon in these strange days, but the Badri family has achieved to lead a peaceful existence away from the city’s violence and rot. The parents, Walid and Soraya, his mother Zeina, and their daughters, Tala and Rim lead an idyllic humble life of isolation in their old family house that they have turned into a sterilized safe space.
      However, when the government finally finds a solution to the crisis, it’s not good news for the Badris. A big landfill will be built right outside their land, hosting all the rot and garbage that has piled up for years, bringing reality to their locked doors;
      This political invasion will break the Badri’s utopia, opening their closed doors on the people, the past and the present they have avoided for years. This will shake the family’s dynamics, driving them to extremes versions of themselves, awakening repressed feelings, making them realize the rot was not only outside their home.
