Audience members watching Gharzeddine's feature film debut, now up at Metropolis cinema, will find other plot expectations overturned as well.There, Nadine (Marwa Khalil) is doing the household chores, accompanied by the bleeps and squeaks of gaming arising from the mobile phones of her boy Rami and his pal.She drives the boys out just in time for them to knock Kirstin's shopping out of her arms, allowing the two women to meet. The women become pals with visits to Raouche rock, tabbouleh lessons and Kirstin volunteering to babysit Rami so Nadine and her husband Pierre can have a date night at home.It's while indulging in that behavior one evening that Pierre is dealt an unexpected blow as Kirstin looks on, and the complexion of the second half of the film abruptly changes.A (basically comic) sequence introduces several new characters and presages a location change as Nadine and Kirstin accompany Amin, his pals and his mom's carpet back up the mountain.
