Synopsis:
The present day. It's a scorching hot afternoon in Beirut. Fortysomething mechanic Tony (Adel Karam) already has a chip on his shoulder about Palestinians, so he's less than welcoming when 60 year-old Yasser (Kamel El Basha), the foreman of a construction crew working on the street outside, asks him to fix the faulty drainpipe on his balcony. Tony closes the door in his face, so Yasser replaces the pipe anyway, only for Tony to smash it to pieces. Passions boil over, each man digs in, and what should have been a trivial incident easily shrugged off escalates quickly into a dispute that reverberates through their families and communities.
Eventually lawyers are called in and the men find themselves in the centre of a highly publicised trial - one that reopens historical and personal wounds on both sides.
