Chronic ('A Shafir)

Omar, a photographer, lost his male lover in an explosion. He turns his experience of loss into an art project and casts three others to tell their stories of trauma, sex, and love. Beirut is a city where a person can experience loss at any moment. Walid, a dancer, avoids falling in love or bonding. May, a Lebanese woman, lost her Syrian lover who died on a boat to Europe.
