Thirteen-year-old Ayoub is a shoeshine boy, working on a big boulevard. His dream is to buy a prosthetic leg for his handicapped mother. Jad, a wealthy young heir, hides behind the wheel of his sport car as he challenges himself to drive from his house to the beach in three minutes. And Aida, a young resident doctor wants to make more money, so starts a new job as an escort for rich men. In their own ways, these three fragile characters confront their loneliness, misery, fears and hopes.
