A film by Joana Hadjithomas & Khalil Joreige

2020 France, Canada, Lebanon - Drama


Maia, a single mother in Montreal, is faced with her resurging past when she receives an unprecedented suitcase: a handful of notebooks, audiotapes and photographs from the 80s, when she was a teenager in Beirut. That's everything Maia mailed to her best friend after she fled with her family to escape the civil war. Maia’s teenage daughter, Alex, suspiciously opens the suitcase to look for answers and starts discovering her mother’s past through the notebooks.
