Born in 1983 during the civil war in Lebanon, Souad grew up in Montreal. During a Saint-Jean Baptiste holiday evening, she gathers with friends on a balcony to watch the fireworks. But the explosions and flashes of light trigger the deeply buried trauma of war. The evening marks the start of a new journey: Souad is plunged into an emotional experience that awakens her five senses, bringing memories of her childhood surging back.
