How can I possibly define, today, my relationship with places and objects of a city that is in a continuous state of loss? I interview my father Nader, a public sector employee, regarding his involvement in the reconstruction phase of post-civil war Beirut, and I film Dalieh, a small port of the city where the last families of fishermen are soon to be evicted as the district is privatized.
