On the day of her wedding, sixteen year old Lamia, must cross the barbed wire barrier that separates her Lebanese village from that of her cousin, which has been annexed by Israel. Between the villages, the frontier is heavily patrolled. A checkpoint, controlled by both sectors, permits wedded couples and dying persons to return to their own village. Lamia reaches the family of her future husband abandoning her younger brother, school, kite and mother...But a new and unexpected feeling is increasing deep inside.
