Synopsis

In modern-day Beirut, single mother Rita juggles her work as an investigative journalist with that of caretaker to both her eight-year-old daughter and her elderly mother. A balance made possible only with the crucial help of Zofan—an Ethiopian helper, who has lived with them for several years. However, one day, while Rita is busy filming a report about illegal and corrupt quarries, Zofan mysteriously disappears without a trace. Rita becomes totally engulfed in this intriguing mystery. As she investigates Zofan’s disappearance, Rita’s life is thrown off balance, and she discovers the hidden side of her helper’s life with unexpected consequences on her own.
