Synopsis:

A summer evening in Beirut. One night in the life of Toufic, a young Lebanese man, and his nocturnal rides. Between his family, friends and love affairs, he tries to seize every day of his existence. Each second is the most important. Soon he discovers that having a normal life in this country is a luxury out of his reach. Fifteen years after the war has ended, a volcano lies on every street corner, like a ticking bomb that is ready to explode.
