Synopsis:
Léa, a 24-year-old Lebanese woman, is pregnant by her Muslim boyfriend. She has taken refuge with her brother Elie, in Belgium, for an abortion. It would be out of the question for Léa’s Christian family to accept such a dishonourable situation. Deep in the Lebanese mountains, family members hold an emergency meeting and decide that Léa must face an honour killing. Responsibility for restoring the honour of the scorned family falls to Elie, her older brother.
