Susana is in her fifties, living a routine life between her home, work as a teacher, and service in the church.

Her son Ramy returns with his wife Laila and son Bassem after years of absence spent in Canada. Susana’s mind cannot comprehend the grandson’s presence, while in her consciousness, the image of the present is mixed with fragments of pictures, home tapes, dreams, and hallucinations that relate to her memory of the incident where she lost her daughter.
