An international city. Late at night. A hospital—public ward. A woman visits her husband. Outside, some kind of war hangs threateningly in the air. We don't know what it is. We do know they are Muslim. There is speculation between them about the possibility of a curfew.

He is too ill to return home. She is trying to keep him - and her whole family—together. They share a small moment of intimacy, courage and strength together.
