Rabih, a young blind singer from Lebanon, sees his passport request turned down : his identity papers are false. Faced by the silence and the lies of his friends and family, he persists against all to seek some pieces of truth about his birth. It is the beginning of a search for his identity in a country still bearing the scars of war.
