Synopsis

Five young art students awake to the sound of gunfire and bombardment. As the electricity has been cut and a curfew imposed, they do not know what is happening outside. To fill the time, the young men decide to prepare a maqloubeh for lunch. They all contribute to the preparation of this traditional dish. Meanwhile, their families call, trying to find out what is going on. Suddenly, unexpected guests arrive.
