In Libya, a brother and sister invested heart and soul for their country during the 2011 revolution, but each from a different side of the front: he supported Qaddafi, she fought for the "rebels." Now she belongs to the ruling class and fights to defend the oppressed and rehabilitate people like her brother. The consequences of the revolution are far from over, and brother and sister continue their fight for the country they love, but when they both receive threats from all sides, they decide to flee to Tunisia. There they observe the repercussions of war and the fragility of democracy as their disillusionment grows. When your country has been destroyed, how can you rebuild from the rubble?
