In Israeli-occupied Lebanon, a young girl defies her family's expectations, Palestinian politics, and gender norms. Lamia's family arranges a marriage with her cousin to provide her with a life free of occupation across the border. Her love for an Israeli soldier and unhappiness in her marriage leave her ostracized when she returns home but free to live her life.
