Hana is seeking some peace after an overwhelming period spent working at a clinic on the Jordanian-Syrian border, where she specialised in treating victims wounded in the war. She finds solace in majestic Luxor, an Egyptian city where she lived in her 20s and dated a handsome archeologist, Sultan, who was also studying there. On this nostalgic solo trip, she lingers through memory-filled hotel lobbies and ancient sites as she begins to grapple with her grief and her emotions from the war. Hana struggles to reconcile the choices of the past with the uncertainty of the present. Until she meets Sultan unexpectedly.
