Drought

Carine, a real estate agent in Beirut, finds herself in empty apartments waiting for clients to show up. As the public spaces outdoors belong to men, Carina finds the sound of the prayer from the streets accentuating her loneliness. She creates an intimate relationship with these empty homes that echo her sexual dissatisfaction. She decides to go outdoors and look for a physical experience.
