Two men become misguided vigilantes as they struggle with the violence of their past in this allegorical drama from filmmaker Borhane Alaouie. Ahmad (Fadi Abi Khalil) and Robby (Raymond Hosni) were once young idealists who fought for freedom as part of a left-wing cadre in Lebanon's civil war, but years later the fighting ended in 1990 they've become jaded and disillusioned with the direction their nation has taken. Ahmad has lost his job as a reporter, and his girlfriend has left him rather than listen to him rant about the Communist leaders he now blames for most of his problems. Meanwhile, Robby, once a documentary filmmaker, prefers to film kids and animals rather than deal with people. One day, Robby is shooting an interview with boy on the street when the lad is killed by a reckless driver; incensed, Robby and Ahmad team up to find the driver and exact a bloody revenge.
