A young man, Samir, attempts to step out of the Dbaye Palestinian Refugee Camp to take his Tinder match out on a date in the other Beirut. Single and 32 years old, it was time for him to step out of his Internet-Cafe place and live a face-to-face experience after failed online relationships. Samir decides to take the mini-van to pursue his not-so-easy quest to meet his match for the first time and take her to the camp in order to prove to his mother the seriousness of his intentions. A series of misfortune events find him in his treacherous journey, and he encounters the awkwardness of being a Palestinian refugee in Lebanon.
