A young waitress (Nayla) dreams of leaving her hometown Tyre, while she works in a local resort next to the sea. When she meets a charming and liberated young man who’s spending the night there, and after he saves her from drowning in the sea, she quickly starts feeling very close to him. He seems like he might be her way out from her suffocating routine. Nayla spends her first wild night with him that ends up with her losing her virginity. The next morning, they plan on leaving together, but during the last minutes, she realises that what she really needs is to leave by herself.
