The free-spirited Badri family have escaped the toxic pollution of Beirut by seeking refuge in the utopic mountain home they have built. But unexpectedly, a garbage landfill is built right outside their fence, bringing the trash and corruption of a whole country to their doorstep. As the trash rises, so do tensions between leaving or resisting, threatening their idyllic home and family unity.

Mounia Akl makes her highly anticipated debut (Cinéfondation Residency, Torino Film Lab, Sundance Institute Lab), with a darkly comic commentary on the realities of modern-day Lebanon.
