A story of unfulfilled love. The story takes the viewer on a short journey through the lives of Tamer and Noha in their continuous struggle in living inside an ongoing war zone. Their encounters with strangers but also with each other make us question the everyday life of those living in Yemen; a land of a forgotten war.
