Leah a beautiful Muslim student is having a dangerous love affair with a Christian banker in the last days of the civil war in Beirut. The couple after a near disaster when they are seen walking hand in hand by militia decide to go to the resort town of Jounieh to the north of the city for a weekend away from the fighting.
