2009: Sri Lanka is in chaos. The civil war between the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam and the Sinhalese government army has ravaged the country for almost thirty years. Siva, a young Tamil refugee living illegally in France since 2005, discovers the bitterness of exile. The pain and alienation that inhabit him increase the lived trauma of the war that devastated his childhood. As the conflict enters its most violent phase, Siva progressively loses contact with his family, caught in the crossfire of the two warring factions in ravaged northern Sri Lanka. The spectacle of the bloody photos and videos posted on the internet push him progressively into a waking dream, a mental journey that will lead him to the battlefield and the trail of his family.
