    • Synopsis
    • Beirut, Lebanon. Three women ride in the same bus towards the same destination: a men's prison in Hermel, in the middle of the desert. Against her parents will, Tamara is visiting her husband, in jail since her wedding day. Lina has one single goal in mind: to have her husband, who is serving a long sentence, sign the divorce papers that will finally free her. Halla travels with fear in her stomach: she is secretly carrying in her bag the weapon her husband, one of the prison guards, forgot at home. An accident throws the journey off track. Lost in the middle of nowhere the women become prey to their anxieties and obsessions. As the land around them becomes more and more arid they hear rumors of massacres and throngs of refugees... And yet they go on, pushing further into what eventually turns into an interior journey where individual life and collective memory blend and blur into another. Is this a dream, a nightmare, a fantasy or each woman's own reality?
