In Montreal, a Lebanese man is found dead, covered with snow. So begins a surreal odyssey for his Canadian son, Wahab. Ghosts appear; a doorway opens onto a sun-drenched beach in Lebanon; family members scurry about like a colony of crabs by the water's edge. Wahab resolves to bury the body in the town of his father's birth. But the idyllic village he envisioned is instead a cesspool of hate, rubble, and death. The feckless Wahab somehow collects a band of followers who help him battle Syrian soldiers, venomous villagers and the psychological scars of war, finally finding peace for Wahab's father and their own tortured souls.
