Synopsis

Brothers Ziad and Joe run a small but lucrative drug dealing business out of their takeout pizzeria in one of Beirut’s working class districts. With their youngest brother Jad about to be released from prison – where he was serving a sentence for a crime that Ziad had committed – Ziad plans to go straight by using their coke-peddling profits to open a restaurant. But Ziad’s supplier, a powerful drug lord who is none too keen to see his dealers retire, convinces the brothers to take on one last job.
