Maysan and Iyad have fled Syria with their daughter and now live in Brittany in the Northwest of France. They have just been informed that their residence permits have been approved. But the good news comes with heartache for Maysan because her husband has decided to file for divorce as soon as their situation is finalized.

Great acting in this dissection of a marriage.
