Kirsten, brazen American post-grad, befriends her next-door neighbor, Nadine, an intelligent mother relegated to full-time Beirut housewife. The greater the unlikely friendship grows, the harder it becomes for the women to dismiss the obvious abuse and neglect of Nadine's husband. As the final days of Kirsten's life in Beirut draw to a close, Nadine must face her husband and settle things once and for all.
