Rabih is a young blind man. When he finds out his ID is fake, he sets out on a journey through Lebanon looking for his birth certificate, his identity. But the country he travels through is also searching for its identity. Between myth a history, between lies and his individual memory, Rabih constructs an image of himself and his homeland with his compatriots.
