Tarek, a 30-year-old Syrian, joins a construction site set in the middle of a forest. Immediately, Tarek is confronted with difficult work conditions plagued by the hostility of Lebanese villagers toward the Syrian workers because they suffered under Syrian military occupation in the 1990s. Despite this, construction on site continues until suddenly, workers start disappearing. In the middle of this paranoiac atmosphere, Tarek is subject to strange visions. He slowly begins to realize that the site is haunted by the ghost of a woman who was allegedly murdered by a Syrian soldier. For Tarek, there is no doubt that she must be getting her revenge on the Syrians. He starts investigating and meets Rana, a local guide with whom a forbidden love story starts. But when the villagers also begin to disappear, Tarek realizes that the truth about the murder of this woman might not be what it seems.
