Amid chaos, cinema's resilience shines bright. 

In the aftermath of the catastrophic explosion from 4 August 2020 in Beirut, a film crew is facing a serious dilemma: should they defy the chaos and move forward with the shooting of their film or surrender to the multiple crises that are spreading all over the country? This film captures their relentless battle to keep making cinema in a shattered city.
