Helen is a middle-aged North American woman attending an academic conference in a war-ravaged Mid-Eastern city, who decides to stay on after her colleagues have left. What begins as a search for her prized necklace perhaps becomes a journey to discover something deeper about her life, her emotional losses, and her identity. Assisted in her quest by an empathetic taxi driver, Helen encounters the rich tapestry of the inhabitants of the battered city who are struggling to rebuild their own broken lives, from whom she learns measures of both acceptance and defiance.
