Nour is a 13-year-old young girl whose mother, a Lebanese woman, is married to a stateless Palestinian man. On a sunny road trip day, the family is set upon by Antar, a thug with politically affiliated impunity, who, in an instance of road rage, murders the father and mother. Owing to Lebanese law, where Lebanese women married to foreigners may not pass on their citizenship to their children, Nour finds herself abandoned to the streets of Beirut where she finds solidarity and support from Nayla, a prostitute.
