Set in a Lebanese village, this Lebanese comedy tells the tale of Therese (Julia Kassar), the mayor's wife, who joyfully prepares for an overnight visit from her daughter's suitor and his parents. Bearing the pain of having lost her brother in the Lebanese-Syrian war to a Syrian bomb, Therese excitedly shares the happy news of the engagement to pictures of her beloved brother - still bizarrely present in every corner of her house. Only when the long-awaited guests are at her doorstep, she discovers they are Syrian; this engagement will only happen over Therese's dead body!
