Through over twenty years' worth of recordings taken from family videos, Mahdi Fleifel provides a rare opportunity to enter the Palestinian refugee camp at Ain el-Hilweh. We discover one country hidden within another, representing the complex nature of Lebanon like a Russian doll. The director's voiceover accompanies us as we explore this microcosm where enjoyable and serious moments are interwoven.
