During the summer of 1982, eighteen-year-old Ivan's parents are evacuated from Beirut. He chooses to stay behind and acts as an interpreter for international medical volunteers in a refugee camp. There he meets Eli, a Norwegian physiotherapist, and helps her treat Youssef, a camp orphan disabled by a cluster bomb. When the Israeli army enters Beirut and surrounds the camp, Eli and Youssef are trapped inside.
