Drama. Khalil, a man originally thought to have been killed in the Lebanese civil war by his friends, suddenly returns to his homeland. He is confronted by his former friends demanding to know the reasons for his actions; they are angry particularly that he appears to have lived out the war in safety abroad rather than dying as a hero in his troubled country.
