Director: Amin Dora

Arabic original version with German subtitles

Set in coastal town in Lebanon, the music teacher Leba marries his high school sweetheart Lara. After giving birth to two daughters, their son Ghadi is born with Down-Syndrome. While his parents lovingly care for him, the neighbors have little understanding for his disability. They want to set up a petition, so Ghadi will be taken away from his parents and has to live in a closed insitution. Out of despair Lara and Leba, together with a few close friends, come up with a witty plan to have Ghadi accepted into the community after all.
