Echoes of the coming demolition of his childhood and current house trigger a series of questions and ideas in the filmmaker’s existence. Being his parents’ only child and attracted to men, he reflects upon cutting with a tradition that may be as old as Lebanon’s recent History thus leading the family to a dead end as well as the meaning of home, especially in modern day Beirut. Is he supposed to perpetuate the race or live a radically different life? That’s when he embarks on both a physical and introspective journey in which he will search within his obscure family tree for unknown ancestors or relatives who might have produced another Mourad male child – hence taking this responsibility off his shoulders. If this leads nowhere, he will have to go where he never thought he would go : looking for a wife.
