In Beirut during the war, two families found refuge in an old palace named the pink house. After the war, the country booms with economic growth and big real-estate projects start. The arrival of Mattar, the new owner of the pink house, changes the daily life of the two families, the Nawaf and Adaimi, who settled there. He informs them of his intention to turn the palace into a commercial centre. The two families must leave within ten days, as by law. Shaken by this sudden news, the inhabitants of the area are soon divided in two clans. On the one hand, the shop keepers are in favour of the economic growth, and on the other hand, the two families and their supporters try to find a place in a system which does not take them into consideration.
