Nablus, Palestin. Anas Zaghlul was once a promising athlete and an usher at a movie theater. One dark night several years earlier, he found the mutilated corpse of a Palestinian woman, a victim of revenge for allegedly cooperating with the Israelis. Since that time, Anas has been on the brink of madness. Despite occasional confrontations with psychiatrists and with an imam concerned about possession by the devil, Anas desperately tries to lead a quiet life.
