Synopsis of the movie:

The story unfolds in Beirut in 2003. Two couples, two divergent destinies: one spiraling upwards, the other downwards. Leila and Nabil have been together for two years, and the stars seem to be aligned for them. They are both rising actors full of dreams and aspirations, and they have all life lying in front of them to accomplish them. Their friends, Hala and Kamal, are experiencing the ups and downs of married life. Deeply in love, they each have their own passion: the former is a writer, the latter a photographer attracted to the sea since his childhood. A couple whose love cannot be spared by the tricks of fate manipulating them. Caught in a dilemma, the woman finds herself trapped in a whirlwind of guilt, apprehension, and eventually undertakes a decision that she is not close of forgetting.
