When Farid, a 60-year-old man who lives abroad, visits his wife in their Lebanese mountain home, he learns that their 16-year-old dog has died – but no one informed him. When the couple visits the location where the dog was supposedly buried, they discover the hill has become a granite quarry. Tensions soon arise as the old dynamics of the couple resurface, and Farid confesses he is returning home for good. When a boy helps him find the remains of his dog, he buries them in the garden. In the following days, Aida learns that Farid is planning to sell their main residence in Beirut due to financial problems. The couple explores their relationship for the first time in years, and Aida confronts her husband, not intending to let their city house go.
