Running away from war and poverty, some Syrian refugees find work in a now more peaceful Lebanon looking for labour to restructure its urban fabric. During the day, these men help raise a skyscraper in Beirut and, at night, prevented by the Lebanese government from circulating through the city, descend to the subsoil of the building still in skeleton, where they rehearse, between beams and pools of water, the possible domestic life that is denied them on both sides of the border. Although marked by a certain poetic bent, the film lends an almost physical dimension to the suffering of those men, forced, by the nature of their trade, to a daily confrontation with the memory of their destroyed houses.
